ODK Developer Survey Results

Thanks to those who responded to our ODK Developer Survey last month.

The most interesting result is that out of the 1024 members on this
list, only 11 people responded. That lack of participation was echoed
in the feedback from several respondents who said that the lack of
clear community guidelines is a barrier to contribution.

So over the last month, we've worked hard to remove some of these
barriers through contribution guides, issues tagged for external
contributors, and more modern platforms for discussions.

We've reworked many of the code repos and we'd would love your
feedback on the following contribution guides.



We've tagged some issues as "quick win" in the different repos. If
you'd like to start contributing, those are a great place to start.



These efforts are slowly showing results. In the last month, we've
seen ODK attract new OSS contributors who've shipped features and
we've had great discussions on the GitHub issues and in the Slack
(http://slack.opendatakit.org) as well.

Looking forward to your help and feedback as we grow our community,

Yaw

Hi Yaw,

Thanks for the effort, surveys like this can be very useful. I wonder if
having it open for more than a week would have helped with response. I know
for me December was very busy and I was offline the week of the survey.

Best,

-Kate

Hi Kate,

Thanks for your response! I think we'll do another survey in about 6 months
and see where we are.

In the meanwhile, there are lots of ongoing discussions on GitHub and on
the Slack, so please join in there. We need everyone's inputs in order to
make good decisions and even a +1 helps!
