Hey welcome to ODK!! Even I am from Pune!!


(Anova S Deve) #7

Hey! Thanks. Who do you work for?


(Akshay Patel) #8

I am a contributor for Collect app.


(Hélène Martin) #9

@Akshay_Patel has been a fantastic contributor over the past few months! Just an idea -- @Anova_S_Deve might it be possible for him (if interested/available) to talk to some of your data collectors and maybe observe a data collection exercise? Seeing the tools at work in person is a fantastic experience and can really help bring up good new ideas for software development.


(Akshay Patel) #10

Sure !!! That would be great. A detailed analysis of use of ODK tools would really help the development team to come up with new features and prioritize existing issues.


(Anova S Deve) #11

I might be able to arrange that for you. Do get in touch, yeah.


(Anup Krishna) #12

Pls make a facility to search for members country wise. It will really help a lot in localisation and improve geographical collaborative work


(Hélène Martin) #13

That's fantastic @Anova_S_Deve, @Akshay_Patel! Keep us posted on your connection.

@mistcrrgpsa if you have ideas on how to make that happen, please share on Country Wise List of Users in ODK Forum. To make this a reality someone will need to take it on and start exploring options!


(Anup Krishna) #14

Shared the same in Country Wise List of Users in ODK Forum, request to process the same

I will be visiting Shelter Associates offices possibly this week or the next one.
I would be writing the case study about the use of tools.
Some guidelines regarding the same will be really helpful.


(Hélène Martin) #16

That is so cool, @Akshay_Patel! I hope you have a wonderful visit. You can take a look at the Showcase to see how others have written up project descriptions. Photos are always really appreciated to make those projects come alive.

I would also recommend you ask anyone you can (data collectors, data managers, etc) about their ODK needs and dreams. I know you're thinking about GSoC projects and collaborating with a local organization to build something they need would be a fantastic approach.


(Akshay Patel) #17

I visited Shelter Associates office today. There are some interesting features that can be added to ODK tools.
I will post a document regarding the visit soon.


(Akshay Patel) #18

@yanokwa @ln I would like to show case the case study on the community forum!!
I have tried to note down my observation as much as possible.
Can I publish it on the forum?


(Hélène Martin) #19

Great to hear you had such a nice visit, @Akshay_Patel! You've now shared the Google doc publicly here and if you'd like to also write it up in the Showcase I think that would be a wonderful idea.
