Hello Everyone!

I am based in Nairobi, Kenya and work at Ona which is a social enterprise whose mission is to ensure equitable access to services for those who need them most. Our platforms include; the Ona platform, which allows users to author surveys, collect data using ODK Collect or Enketo webforms then visualise the data. OpenSRP, which is a mobile health platform developed by Ona in conjunction with World Health Organization. Canopy, which is a data analytics platform that allows users to build beautiful, intuitive dashboards from the data collected at Ona and other sources.

I assist in troubleshooting issues raised by Ona users and those reaching out to us on issues related to XLSForm Authoring and applications that have integrated with Ona such as Enketo, ODK Collect, RapidPro and Tableau. Looking forward to collaborating with you all!

Hello everyone, My name is Karan Vishwakarma and I am pursuing Bachelors in Information Technology at IET Indore.

I got involved with ODK community while developing my Android application and collecting and managing data with ODK Aggregate. I have developed an Android application named ‘KeyNote’ (available on PlayStore) which helps the users to manage data in the form of notes. It also keeps the users information safe.

I designed my portfolio (attach link if possible) website using tools like HTML, CSS, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, XAMPP, Google Web Toolkit and PHP and hosted the website on web host by managing files through FileZilla.
You can follow up with me on my GitHub account https://github.com/karanvish1997

Apart from technical projects, I have played Badminton as a sport for nearly 11 years and represented Jabalpur district in India at State and National level tournaments. This sport has taught me patience and discipline to enhance my ability to work efficiently and think clearly under pressure.
Playing guitar is one of my favorite recreational activities after a hard working day.
It was two years ago when I started learning the instrument online and was intrigued immensely. Without determination and patience, I would not have continued this hobby until now. It gives me a chance to increase my memory power and develop my organisation skill
as well. Overall, I believe my hobbies have helped me shape my personality in a positive direction and have given me space and freedom to be creative.

Hi ODK community:

I'm a wildlife biologist in Alberta, Canada, and I am completely new to ODK, having just discovered it this week. As part of my work, I conduct a number of different types of wildlife surveys, such as point counts for birds, where I visit several points within a site and document the species I observe at each point and other information. Data collection is done by pencil and paper, and the datasheets are then taken back to the office where they are entered into an excel spreadsheet. This process is painfully inefficient. I have been looking for a way to collect field data digitally, but without the technical expertise, I haven't been able to come up with an efficient solution yet. I'm trying to learn as much as I can here so I can hopefully make the ideal tools for my needs.

Welcome to ODK, and thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself! If you take a look back through the forum you'll find others that are or looking at using ODK for wildlife surveys: eg turtles (Enable Case Management/Preloading), bats (Introduce yourself here!), fisheries (Introduce yourself here!), etc. They may be a good source of inspiration, so please reach out to our community and maybe you'll find some other ODK 'birds-of-a-feather' [excuse the pun :wink: ]

Hi! I'm based out of India and I have been using ODK off and on since 2015 after a senior statistician introduced it to me. I have been using it mostly for quantitative surveys for agriculture and now more recently for a project around camps to enhance awareness on basic social security schemes. Looking forward to understanding how I can use ODK much more for more efficient data collection and monitoring purposes.. Cheers!

Hi all!
I'm Chris Davies from SA, currently working in NZ. I first started using ODK around 2011 for my MSc data collection in ecology, and have been using it off and on since then for various academic, personal, and professional projects. While I'm certainly no coder, I'm trying to learn what I can and the ODK community seems a great place to get some relevant experience.
