(Debra Eskinazi) #574

Hello! I’m Debra. I am a writer and editor focusing on a transition into tech. I was looking for ways to contribute to an open-source project and heard this was a great place to start. I’m excited to have been pointed in the direction of ODK and so far have been really impressed with its impact in far reaches of the world. I can’t wait to get to work!

About me: I’m a first-generation Jewish American (U.S.) with parents from Cuba :cuba: and Argentina :argentina:. I am interested in the intersection of politics and religion and (most importantly) fostering an appreciation for the beautiful mosaic that makes up this place we call earth :earth_africa:. I live in California in the SF Bay Area with my husband and two daughters. I want to create a sustainable homestead where I can build cool things with welders and turbines and live off the land. :seedling:


Hello everyone!

I'm a forestry engineer in Rouen (France) and I'm working on a form to collect data on forest' soil properties. I'm not used to this kind of tools but ODK would really help the forest managers to collect data easier directly on their smartphone.

(Satish Ravishankar) #579

Hi everyone!

I am currently an Impact Researcher at a renewable energy company in the south of India. I must add that I am an engineer by experience and fairly new to the social impact evaluation scene. But it's been a great ride so far.

I'm working with ODK 2.0 to deploy a household survey. This is also my first real ODK project.

I study machine learning on the side (a little late to the party) and recently learned that I enjoy teaching.

You can get in touch with me on -

Looking forward to figuring this all out!

Hi! I'm Godfrey Kassano from Dar es salaam Tanzania. I've been following ODK with interest since 2017 when I started working with Humanitarian OpenstreetMap Team (HOT) in different projects including Ramani Huria and others. Since then, I've been using ODK in various projects involving data collection.

I'm interested in knowing a lot concerning ODK since it has been part of my life since I use it frequently in my dairy activities.

You can find me on facebook, Twitter

I am Evans Makundi From Dar es salaam, Tanzania

I have used ODK from 2011 to 2014 on various projects, and it was beautiful tool. i use to develop my own server for fetching data from ODK Collect but at the moment most of the functions are depreciated.

I have recently modified ODK collect to meet some small changes that i need i am yet to test it out on another project,

Anyone from around Africa are welcome to share ideas or borrow a hand on few things.
