Even though i was in one way or the other participating in the community already. This period made me strengthen my interaction with the community even more. I started by Me claiming and issue ( Trunk-5221 )which i worked on and as well attending the daily scrum meeting of the openmrs community. I have been very much welcomed and i get a lot of assistance and feedback from the community in places where i got stuck while working on the ticket which i cliamed, after a scrum meeting some one of the community was assigned to help me out resolve the blocker that is preventing me from working. This went on for about a week and i was able to make a pull request on the ticket which i claimed. This marked the end of my first week of Community Bonding Period.
