Outreachy: Explaining my project

Welcome to blog 3!
So this week's blog is about explaining my project and community to my audience 🤔

About my community

ODK-X, produces free and open-source software for collecting, managing, and using data in resource-constrained environments.
A major advantage of ODK-X apps over traditional data apps (like Microsoft Excel) is that they are available offline on mobile phones 🙌

About my project

  • I'm mainly working towards improving the UI and UX of the mobile apps, which means we want to further simplify and enhance the app experience for our users and field workers.
  • We aim to achieve it by making the look and feel of the apps better and making them easier and more intuitive to use.
  • The scope of my project also covers helping the developers develop better apps for ODK-X, that is, we aim to create templates, libraries, and a style guide, which the developers can refer to, for creating consistent good looking apps 😎

My doubts and confusions

Initially, I was confused as to where and how I should start.

  • Should I just start creating mock-ups based on my observation?
  • Or ask my mentors?

But then we discussed and realized that we are working for the users, so asking the users would be the best thing to do!
And that's what we did; we created a feedback form and circulated it amongst our users and got a lot of good feedback that we can work on 😌

Currently, I'm compiling the feedback and trying to understand the problems and come up with solutions.
All-in-all, I'm enjoying my project! 🥰
