Introduce yourself here!

Bonjour tout le monde,

Hello,

I'm Dipo from Nigeria. I'm a developer and work mostly with Python, can be found on GitHub as dodumosu (though I'm not very active).

I am part of the team developing Apollo for the National Democratic Institute, a tool for data collection that's been mostly used for election observation, and have been partly responsible for integration of ODK support for it.

Hello everyone!
I am Anthony Ankrah from :ghana: Ghana :ghana: . I am what you would call a greenhorn​:hatching_chick: to ODK having learnt about it from my Project Manager about 5 months ago.

I must say it was fun hearing him talk about ODK and how customizable the forms were and the wide variety of possibilities it presented to us (being a company in the agro-value chain particularly interested in traceability). His enthusiasm led me to deploy ODK Aggregate via a VM on my laptop. Imagine how bright my face lit when I connected to the server via WiFi and actually saw my imported form built via build show up on my phone.:grin::exploding_head:

Currently, I'm trying to figure out, for the life of me🤦‍♂️, how to get ODK Central running on Windows. Who knew getting Windows Subsystem for Linux installed on Windows (their own product) could be so much fun🙄.

Outside data collection and work, I like to listen to music, play video games (CODM has been my goto the past couple weeks), build websites and webapps, watch current tech trends on YouTube, learn/practice/teach a programming-related topic (:panting: :weary::woozy_face:...LOL). You can find me online with the alias @someQhuacyBi or @knit_tech both on Twitter, AnthonyAnkrah on GitHub and AnthonyAnkrah on Gist.

Hope to contribute to this community some day. #FunDaysAhead #LetsGo

Hi All,I'm Malherbe Rossouw and I'm based in Springbok South Africa.
I work for a NGO that focuses on working with local farmers on the communal areas through various conservation activities.
Parts of the areas where we work in have no mobile reception, thus we had the need for offline data collection that supports spatial data.
Outside of my work I like to take landscape and nature photos and have recently started laser cutting.

Cheers.

Hello all! I'm Chris, and I'm based in Portland, Oregon, USA.

This is really my first exposure to humanitarian OSS software projects, so be gentle :slight_smile: I found this while looking for projects that would help me expand my world a bit while giving back, and I'm hoping to learn more about both ODK and POSM ...

Prior to this I've worked on software that operates on and analyzes Wikidata data dumps, done healthcare software architecture and development projects (HL7, FHIR and SMART-on-FHIR, if anybody knows what those are), worked on a fintech startup here in Portland, and done lots and lots of API-related work for various companies in healthcare, finance, telecommunications, logistics, retail and elsewhere. I'm not entirely sure how relevant that past experience will be, but we'll see...

I'm reasonably conversant in Java, Node.js, PostgreSQL, Google Cloud and AWS, with some C#, Python and various NoSQL and big data tech thrown on for good measure.

Looking forward to contributing!
