Emil Rossing TSC Application - 2020-03-10

Emil Rossing (@Emil)


What contributions (e.g., issue triage, tech support, documentation, bug fixes) have you made to the ODK or ODK-X community?
Tech support as well as some minor contributions to documentation and code.

How do you believe your contributions have benefited ODK or ODK-X?
Growing the user base is crucial for ODK-X, so I believe tech support and community work is quite important. Also, I hope to be able to contribute some more code/examples/snippets in the future as I am working on some real-world implementations based on ODK-X.

What do you believe the top priorities for ODK-X are?
Growing the user base and lowering the technical barriers. Also, continue the strong and active online community and the helpful and fast forum.

How will you help the ODK-X community accomplish those priorities?
Hopefully I can contribute with experiences from projects in resource constrained environments and collecting feedback from my colleagues in the public health sector. Also I can help with development, documentation and utilities.

How many hours a week can you commit to participating on the TSC?
3-… depending on the tasks at hand

What other mobile data collection projects, social good projects, or open source projects are you involved with?
I have worked mostly on the implementation-side of things, and as such I have worked on several heath oriented projects in sub-saharan Africa utilizing ODK, ODK-X, RapidSMS and DHIS2.
