I am a professor at University of São Paulo, Brazil. My main interest is tropical forest ecology and conservation. As a scientist I have some skills in programming, mostly in R but a little of other languages (PHP, SQL, C++, LISP, HTML) and I now learning XML to be able to build and understand my own forms in ODK. I am basic involved in my own XLS/XML but as soon I have more experience I would like to help the community in any way I can. I am a really fan of colaborative and open source community. My github is and I have several open source projects done, mostly in R.

Hi Everyone,

This is a bit long overdue, but I thought it be appropriate to formally introduce myself.
My name is Turtle. Space Turtle.
I've been using ODK for a few years now and gathered most of my skills developing Forms for data collection.
I've worked with two research-based non-profit/non-governmental organizations that have primarily used the suite of tools for data collection.
I'm still very much continuing to learn the tools and will definitely continue to post regularly - and of course assist anyone where I can.

Glad to be part of the team.

(Kate Seong) #564

Hi community!

My name is Kate and i've been working with a variety of organizations in East Timor for the past 5 years to implement mobile data collection systems. I am by no means an expert coder, but I like to pick up things here and there as I go. Currently I am working on 2 major programs in Timor, related to disaster risk reduction and agriculture.

I am typically based in Timor, but will see where the future takes me! Born in raised in the USA, but have been living overseas for awhile now.

Happy to be involved in the forum and thankful for all the support that I have gotten and will get in the future here!

(Clint Tseng) #565

Welcome, Kate! In my experience, there are no expert coders, only people who are willing to try and people who are not. We're glad to have you here, and I'm sure you'll be helping others on here in no time at all.

(Raymond Besiga) #566

Hi Kate!

How's Timor-Leste treating you? Happy to see you here. I'm an ODK oldie and I'll tell you, the community is fun and decent. Welcome! :slight_smile:


(Kate Seong) #567

Hey Ray! Where are you these days?

(Carlos Rivas S) #568

Hola everyone, I'm Carlos from #Nicaragua but I kind of move around Central America. I got into ODK a few years by now because my work relates to maps and field data collection for disaster risk management and food security analysis... also for tourism, in fact the first time I've ever use ODK was for a tourism routes study.

@carlosgis is my Twitter account is dedicated to GIS, Climate Change, Tourism and some other things I like such as basketball, baseball and food!

Fun fact, I spent about two years working for an NGO in data collection tool using Personal Data Assistant (PDA), two years! With ODK this is reduced to days.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Best regards

Carlos Rivas
