Last night, this happened... @purplespatula: "I'm going to the office." Lexi (28 months): "Do you have a bug?" @purplespatula: 😳 It's nuts how much kids understand about the world and the Sisyphean task that is software development. Anyway, there was a bug. It's fixed. Maybe.

Also, Lexi, looking over my shoulder: "Is that @GitHub? Show me the octocat."

ODK's first ever deployment was in Uganda. A decade later, the country used it to help vaccinate 19.5 million kids. What an amazing effort by the Ministry of Health!
In Oct 2019, Uganda vaccinated 19.5 million kids from measles and polio! @GetODK was used for data collection and @DHIS_2 was used for reporting. Read lessons learned in the case study at unicef.org/media/93781/file/…. Thanks to @MinofHealthUG, @WHO, @UNICEF, and @GAVI for their work!

No pressure, Greenland.
How global is ODK's impact? In the last 12 months, ODK has been used in every country in the world except Greenland and North Korea. If you know about a project in either country, let us know!

It was so inspiring to meet the up-and-coming data scientists from @ClickOnKaduna. The future of Nigeria is very bright indeed!
The team @ClickOnKaduna pulled another big win having one on one session with @getodk founder @yanokwa. Now they will be part of the product development reviews for a tool that has faithfully served millions across the world. Weldone 👏

When I walked by my kid, she muttered, “You’re the past, I’m the future.” I asked for a clarification and this is what I got.

Submission editing and approve/reject support! The next Central release is going to make a lot of data managers happy.
Change is literally coming to ODK! Submission editing and approve/reject workflows are in design review and will be in the next Central release. 🚀

Time flies when you are having fun!
A demo of ODK Collect from 11 years ago! Back then, it was called AndroidRosa and it had a lot fewer features 😂 invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=MlBhG1K0…

Collect will soon have profiles so you can switch between projects. But we are laying the groundwork for something even bigger. Any guesses?
We are exploring adding profiles to Collect to enable quick switching between different projects! Profiles would combine all form files and settings and be identified by a name, color, and icon (including emoji 🐢). Thoughts? Leave your feedback at forum.getodk.org/t/23340

This is one of the most exciting features we've ever shipped in ODK. Automate your entire data analysis and visualization with just a few clicks. 🤯
With ODK Central's OData feed, you can say goodbye to manually downloading data. Just connect Excel (or PowerBI or R) directly to ODK and you'll get a spreadsheet or dashboard that automatically updates as new submissions come in. Learn how at docs.getodk.org/central-subm…

7.1 million children vaccinated from polio! Be it polio eradication or COVID-19 case tracking, it's amazing to see @GetODK continue to deliver at scale.
In Nov 2020, Ethiopia conducted a polio vaccination campaign targeting 7.1 million children. Campaign quality was confirmed with ODK. Thanks to @FMoHealth, @WHO, @UNICEF, @CDCgov, and @GatesFoundation for their work keeping Ethiopia polio free! 🇪🇹 afro.who.int/news/ethiopia-c…

I wonder if the America-first nutters on Parler know "parler" is a French word.
