DDP: Recent Progress and Collaborations

Over the past two months, we have been diligently working on our first release for the DDP platform. We are thrilled to have Rohit, our Director of Engineering, leading the engineering efforts. At Project Tech4Dev, we strongly believe in the power of open source and aim to make everything we do public. Therefore, codebase are public and we welcome anyone to contribute on it. Throughout the development process, we strive to adhere to best practices and ensure high-quality code.

In order to maintain a high standard, we have begun focusing on writing extensive test cases to cover all the features developed by the engineering team. We have set a rigorous threshold that we are committed to upholding. Abhishek Shetty is focusing on backend testing and making sure that we’ve quality test cases. On the other hand Ishan is our alround developer and leading the TAP engagement

As our organization continues to grow, we have recognized the need for better structuring. We are delighted to welcome Abhishek Nair as our Product Manager, whose presence has brought about significant improvements in our features and focused efforts for the development team. Since his arrival, we have made notable enhancements to several aspects of our work.

Let’s talk about where we are with our POC’s 

We have worked on Six proof-of-concept (POC) projects with the assistance of our partner, Goalkeep. The POC’s with STiR, Antarang, DOST Education, and TAP have been completed. Currently, we are collaborating with SHRI to transition the project to them, enabling them to start analyzing their data. We have encouraged them to utilize their own data warehouse, and Vinod has been instrumental in facilitating the transfer of data from Kobo to their warehouse. This strategic move holds immense long-term significance as it reduces the effort required on their part to maintain data in Google Sheets.

In addition, we are engaged in multiple projects with SNEHA. Goalkeep and Vinod are providing support for certain components, while Sneha has recently hired a new data engineer. we’re assisting the data engineer with all the technical work required for these projects.

We’re also doing a deep dive with LAHI and trying to understand there program really well. After lot of research and discussions we have proposed a POC work with them. We will be soon start working with them.

Next step with the POC’s

Currently, all the proof-of-concepts (POCs) we have undertaken are set up on separate infrastructures, and we are assisting NGOs with their implementation. However, our long-term goal is to provide a comprehensive product that enables NGOs to easily manage their own pipelines, transformations, and orchestrations. Our next steps will involve handing over the pipeline management to the NGOs and providing them with training to effectively handle these pipelines.

We’re doing a DDP sprint starting from 11th July to 14th July. One of our main focus will be to introduce the 0.1 version to all the NGO’s and give them a sense of what we’ve been doing from last 8 to 9 months. We also need to make a strong pitch to our NGO’s who will be using this in long run and why its worth it.
