Thank You Solar Library Champions!

We’re extremely grateful for all of our Generosity campaign supporters!  As of February 16, 2016, nearly 60 people had donated approximately $14,200 to our campaign.  We’re excited to begin assembling the Solar Libraries this month to send to Haiti.
In particular, we’d like to give a big shout out to our three Solar Library Champion supporters!

What We Learned From V3 Testing, and How We’ve Responded

As Sharon outlined in her great post last week, we have completed our first round of user testing on Ushahidi V3. We tested key interactions on pages from the Pattern Library with users of varying levels of Ushahidi experience.

Ushahidi V3 User Experience Testing

It’s been a couple of weeks since our last v3 beta release, but there’s a whole lot of work that’s been happening in the background.
The V3 team has been working around the clock to ensure that we’re not only building a world class product, but a product that is user centered. The design and functionality need to be able to meet our users’ expectations.

“The Mecca for Women in Tech” – That’s what Linda terms the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing to be. It probably is :). Linda, Chris, Brian and I had the honor of being able to attend this year’s celebration in Phoenix, Arizona.

Envisioning Ushahidi v3!

In the last couple of weeks, we’ve rolled out four beta releases, and held different community discussions around what Ushahidi v3 looks like and infrastructural changes within the platform.

Introducing the Ushahidi Platform Front-End Stack

In a series of blog posts over the past few weeks we have learned about the radical changes under the hood within the Ushahidi Platform, evolving from an initial set of libraries to a whole new set of libraries. Over the past months, as we were building the application, we experienced a series of limitations that brought into question our choice of libraries.

A BRCK Update – Jan 2014

It’s been a busy few months for the BRCK team, as now the company has spun outside of Ushahidi and is it’s own commercial entity.
