Please join us tomorrow at Change for a talk about ODK
<>- one of the ICTD labs major projects.  Waylon
Brunette will be taking about the lessons learned from ODK 1.x that have
lead to the ODK 2.0 tool suite.
*What:* ODK: Where we've come from and where we're going

*When:* Tuesday,  April 12, 2016

*Where: *The Allen Center, CSE 203

*Abstract:* Open Data Kit (ODK) is an open-source, modular set of tools for
building mobile data collection systems. ODK provides an out-of-the-box
solution for organizations to author, deploy, and manage mobile data
collection solutions. The goal of ODK is to create an ecosystem of data
collection tools through modularized abstractions to enable users to
mix-and-match pieces needed to build application-specific mobile
information service as well as develop their own components. This
presentation will give a brief introduction to ODK 1.x with a discussion of
some of the successes and lessons learned from ODK 1.x. The second half of
the presentation will give a preview of the new ODK 2.0 tool suite which is
a parallel set of tools designed based on feedback from users and
developers about limitations experienced with ODK 1.x tools. The ODK 2.0
tool suite aims to increase an organization's data collection and
management capabilities by supporting data synchronization, malleable
workflows, configurable presentation screens, and new data input methods on
mobile devices.

*Bio: *Waylon Brunette is one of the founders of Open Data Kit and is a
current member of the ODK core development team. Waylon is currently a PhD
student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the
University of Washington. He is advised by Professors Richard Anderson and
Magdalena Balazinska (previously by Gaetano Borriello). Waylon’s research
interests include mobile systems, sensing, ubiquitous computing, and data
management. His work focuses on designing systems that improve the lives of
underserved populations in low-income regions by leveraging mobile
computing devices and sensors.
