My name is Ajwad Shaikh. I have known ODK for about six months now. I have already started contributing to the Open Source Development for ODK Collect in the past week. But my journey with ODK started a while ago, when I was working on my Summer School Project. I forked ODK Collect and created a new app on top of it to suit the organizational needs. However, I understood that the open source community is an absolute essence of how such high quality code is shared and maintained for free in the era of capitalism.
I decided to contribute to ODK as a part of giving back for how the software and the community helped me during my summer school project.
