CommCare Advanced Topics Workshop in Malawi Application Deadline is Approaching!

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that Dimagi will be hosting the first CommCare Advanced
Topics Workshop in Malawi! The Deadline for applications is October 20th!

The workshop will focus on building participants’ ability to use Dimagi’s
CommCare http://www.commcarehq.org platform and build mobile applications
for Frontline Workers. While many previous CommCare workshops have
provided participants with a general mServices overview and an introduction
to app-building for CommCare, this workshop’s focus will be on building on
participant’s knowledge of CommCare and developing advanced technical
skills needed to deploy and maintain highly-tailored mobile programs.

Because the workshop will focus on advanced material, we think it will be
most beneficial for people with previous experience with CommCare. Workshop
applicants who have not previously built a CommCare application will be
asked to complete our online tutorial
https://wiki.commcarehq.org/display/commcarepublic/Beginner+Tutorial
prior to the workshop.

The goals of the workshop are to:

··· -

Build CommCare users’ technical skills across 3 main areas:

  App building skills - including advanced technical skills.
  -

  Device Management -  installing, updating, and troubleshooting
  applications.
  -

  Project Management -  utilizing reports, exports, supervision tools,
  dashboards, SMS for performance improvement, etc.
  -

Share general best practices and lessons learned with participants from
other CommCare projects

Foster a CommCare user community in Malawi

Get input from fro users and identify new features to add to the
CommCare roadmap
