ODK TAB Call - 2022-11-02

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, 2 November 2022. The meeting time should be shown in your timezone above.

The agenda is tentatively as follows:

  • Entities (first slice of work)
    • Central will likely be released end of November or early December. It will be able to create entities on submission approval. Building forms for this will require a little bit of form XML editing for now. We generally think this is good friction that will give us a little bit more time to get feedback on the form spec before we finalize it.
    • Collect will likely be released in 2-3 weeks. It has an ephemeral entities viewer only available in debug builds.
  • Planning for future releases... For both tools, we’re considering a tick-tock model (one entities-heavy release, one without entities work), or a more blended/adhoc model. We’re interested in your experience with both as consumers and/or creators. Which do you think would be better for our user bases?
