ODK TAB Call - 2022-09-07

These calls bring together the Technical Advisory Board for the ODK suite (@TAB) to discuss roadmaps, working groups, and other issues of technical governance. Everyone is welcome to come to these calls, but only TAB members may talk.

The calls are held every four weeks on Zoom. We put the agenda and recording of every call in this document.

Our next call will be Wed, 7th September. The meeting time should be shown in your timezone above.

The agenda is tentatively as follows:

  • Webinars to showcase latest functionalities of Collect (e.g. maps)?
  • pyODK: would it be useful in the meantime a git repo with some example of what it is possible (e.g. bulk users' creation)?
  • Spec proposal: naming media files

The agenda can also be seen in the agenda document

If there are topics you would like to add to the TAB's agenda, please comment below. :point_down:


Naming media files should be the priority topic.

The next priority for the core team is getting feedback on this: Backups to Google Drive from Central will stop working after Jan 31st. I'm particular, we'd like to understand who should be responsible for backups.

For pyODK, perhaps @LN can show a quick Jupyter notebook of what is currently possible.

And if we have time, I can show a quick demo of some of the visual changes that are coming to ODK docs.

If you missed the call, you can see the recording below.
