ODK 1 TSC Election - 2017-11-27

As previously announced here in the ODK Forum, the current Project Management Committee (PMC) will select the initial members of the Technical Steering Committee (TSC) for ODK 1 (Collect, Build, Aggregate, Briefcase, JavaRosa XForms) over the next few weeks.

If you have a technical background, this is your chance to step up as a volunteer leader, help influence the direction of ODK 1, and help us grow! If you are interested in this opportunity or the process, read on for more important information.

The PMC will solicit applications now through Dec 11th with the web form below. On Dec 12th, the PMC will post the text of the applications on the ODK Forum so the community can ask public questions of the candidates until Dec 19th. On Dec 20th, the PMC will begin internal discussions for one week and then announce the initial TSC members on Jan 1st.

So to summarize:

  • Nov 27, 2017 - Dec 11, 2017: Call for TSC applications
  • Dec 12, 2017 - Dec 19, 2017: Call for public questions
  • Dec 20, 2017 - Dec 27, 2017: PMC discussion
  • Jan 01, 2018: Results announced

The term is 1 year, and minimum time commitment is 2-4 hours per month for TSC meetings. Asynchronous email discussions are also likely to consume a few hours a month.

An ideal candidate would spend more time than that consistently participating in the community to contextualize the technical decisions the committee has to make. Other than meetings, the specific activities you may perform as a TSC member will vary based upon your unique skills and interests.

The roles and responsibilities of the TSC are described in detail at TSC Governance. Please read the entire document before applying.
