Introduce yourself here!

My name is Bogna and I live in Poland (close to 3city) and I'm a software tester.
I am new to ODK but I'm looking forward to getting to know it and members of this community :).


I’m Riddy from DRC, I’m working at Bluesquare, Brussels-based company that helps organizations in digitizing data. We often use ODK for mobile collection for some projects.


I am Sivan, based in Amsterdam.

I work for Soil & More Impacts, a small advisory firm based in the Netherlands and Germany. We deliver agronomic advice and impact assessment services.

We use ODK a lot for data collection or help clients to use it. In this way we can do carbon footprints, water footprints etc. Or predict risks with regard to erosion, water scarcity etc. We also do True Cost Accounting!

As our expertise is not completely in IT, ODK provides excellent means to autonomously deliver mobile data collection services. Working with mobile technology can also be a big motivator for young farmers around the world, bringing a sense of modernization and connectedness along the value chain.

Hi Everyone,
I am Edward Amanyoh Kwame, a Ghanaian :ghana: and lives in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region of the country.
I got involved in ODK when I was a final year intern at the Ghana Health Service, Regional Health Directorate, Sunyani Division. After a quick introductory section with a Health Information Division Officer who learnt it from an East African country after traveling there for research work.
I have been working on a Data collection form for the hospitals based on their Environmental state for almost year now.

I love farming, reads a lot of nonfiction books and I love riding my Dad's Yahama DT 175.

I currently hold a degree in Computer Engineering from UENR, Sunyani. An Android Developer for the past 4 years.
I preferred to be called the coding farmer because I am a farmer who codes.:grinning:
On Twitter I am @EdwardAmanyoh



I am looking forward to using ODK to collect data for our research.

Thank you for your consideration, will conduct you asap.

Hi I'm Enric and I live in Girona (Catalonia). I'm trying to use ODK to improve my field work. My job consists in collect data from urban plots in Salt (a town next to Girona). The main goal is to connect the problems of the farmers in these plots with the civil servants in the hall town. To do it I need to collect good qualitative and quantitative data about the crops and uses of the land. I've heart about ODK and I'm sure that it could help me a lot, but I don't find a manual or good instructions to learn how to use it.

I'll be grateful if someone could send me a link to learn how to start using ODK.

Thank you.

Hi, I'm Andrew and I am based in Durham, North Carolina (United States). I got involved in ODK because of a project I work on with CDC and IntraHealth International in South Sudan. In that project we are implementing a large survey in which the instruments were designed with XLS forms and the data is being collected with ODK Collect. I am a new but enthusiastic ODK user.


Hi, my name is Roger Schürch. I am faculty at Virginia Tech in the US, and I have just stumbled across ODK two weeks ago. Now, we are already using it in the field to research honey bee foraging. At the moment we are using a Google Drive and Sheets to hold the data. I am looking forward to working ODK more and more into my workflows!

Hey friends-

My name is Matt Crum and I'm based in Nashville, USA with United Methodist Communications. I've worked on ODK projects in a dozen or so countries primarily in Africa between UMCOM and my prior org Inveneo.
I appreciate the ODK community and all the work that gets put into such an important project!



Hello Everyone !!
I'm based in India and I'm pursuing my BTech 3rd year in IT field from IIIT-A. I've started my open-source contributions from ODK only so it feels good to be a part of this community.

I have made many little contributions to ODK Collect, ODK-share(which is in its prior stage) and many more. Now currently, I am working on ODK-X Notifications (contains skunkworks-parrot and skunkworks-bat) under the GSoC summer internship programme. So by this time, most of the work has been done already on ODK-X Notifications therefore soon I will be posting a demo for the same on this forum. Hoping to get positive feedback from the community.


Thanks, I am Jovit Felix, from Tanzania, East Africa. I am working with a Non-profit Organization known as Savannas Forever Tanzania. I have been doing survey coding for some years with another software. I am new with XLS forms, currently I am coding by using Survey 123 which is originally from ODK. I have chose to join this forum because I found it very active when I was looking some solutions online, also Survey 123 is completely ODK.
