Hi everyone,

My name is Chris and I’m a developer based between UK and Canada. I’ve been working with ODK for the past 5 years or so, now have my first ODK-X project underway. I’ve previously worked on large-scale data collection projects and often created my own apps to feedback information from the data collected, so I’m intrigued to see what can be done with the new ecosystem of tools!

Hey I am OKPE MONDAY J, a Nigerian, currently working for fmard pace as an enumerator, thanks to OLDK FORUM


Hi all! Janna here - and finally going to figure out how to get started with ODK-X. Current project idea that is on my mind is to make a simple (ha…we always start out hoping for “simple”, right?) app for managing participants in a training programme (e.g., participants who attend multiple modules over multiple different training days). And also hoping that ODK-X then allows us to do follow-up with those training participants to actually track impact better over time.
I live in the UK and have been a long-time advocate of ODK in humanitarian contexts!


I am Ali Iqbal. I am from Pakistan. I work in the renewable energy sector. Part of our job is to do site surveys, for which we use pen and paper plus digital cameras for the pictures. Since work has grown by quite a lot recently, i wondered if a digital solution could be implemented. A friend told me about ODK and here i am to try it out.

I am an electronics engineer by training but have a profound interest in software development. Its a recent preoccupation and it seems never ending. With implementation of an ODK based service, apart from our work becoming easier and more streamlined, i aim to have some hands on first timer experience with cloud services as well and maybe deploy a web application i built for a remote monitoring service on it too using docker containers. Its a long way to go… but hey! to me the journey is as important as the destination.

Glad to be here among such nice folks. I hope this community prospers for the benefit of us all.



Hello All!
I am Ali. I am based in Guatemala. The organization where I work is planning to implement a “Mobile Data Entry” project, so I found ODK when searching for a solution. I think I was very lucky to find the project and I am starting to learn about it.
Some things I love are photography and bread baking. I am not very active in social media, but you can find me at @AliAndrettaGT on Twitter.
FUN FACT: I fear roaches!
