In collaboration with Zara Rahman we would like to spend some time and focus working on building out the Open Development Toolkit that aims to provide information to users wishing to work with and around open data.
Particularly working on gathering information from users and developers of open data tools on how to setup and utilise these tools in a variety of environments and use-cases.
If you would like to participate in this session or if you have information you would like to feed into this discussion, please feel free to comment below.
Can I suggest a few additions/corrections…?
Somewhere on End User Display the new Openaid.se WordPress Theme should be added. Perhaps under “Not Mature” since the source code won’t be released publicly on GitHub until the site release in September, but then it will definitely be both mature and continued to be maintained… We’re working on making it as non-publisher specific as possible as well.
Regarding the Open Aid Map it is both IATI and Open Sourced on GitHub but perhaps put it under “Not mature” as it is probably not feasible yet to deploy it without assistance of the vendor SpatialDev.
Finally, I’m wondering what platform the “Open Aid Dtata” (sic!) is…?
I’ve fixed the typo in the spreadsheet. I’m also not sure what platform it was meant to be, as I was just transcribing from the post-its.
Thanks, have added this.pernillan:
I’ve moved this on the spreadsheet, to “Not mature”, as you suggest.
I think it ended up in the non-IATI section, as my understanding is that most of the project level data is taken from country Aid Management systems, rather than from IATI data published on the registry.
This is is an important distinction to make, between the maturity of software as a hosted solution, and as something for other people to deploy. It might be useful for us to look at how this distinction applies to other tools.
I know for example that CSV2IATI sees a lot of use, but has been installed by very few people, and the deployment/deveploment instructions are a bit sparse.
