Guest Post By:Angela Oduor Join us for a few hours of hacking and brainstorming on what we're building/should be building into the newest version of Ushahidi, v3. The event will be onTuesday, May 20th 2014 from 5:30PM to 8:00PM at iHub-4th Floor in the Bishop Magua Centre. v3 demo link   Developers Ushahidi is built on the Kohana Framework. Those unfamiliar with MVC frameworks should have a look at the following documentation prior to the meet up: Kohana 3 documentation Kohana 2 documentationandKohana 101 doc We'll take up a chunk of time walking through setting up Ushahidi v3 and explaining its architecture, but it would be great if you could take a stab at trying to install it before the meetup ;) Installation instructions can be found on ourgithub repositoryREADME Incase of any queries/ if you have trouble installing, feel free reach out on IRCirc:// More documentation on v3 can be found on ourwiki. Here are a couple of features we'd like to work on with you: • Migrations: How do we migrate data from ushahidi v2.x into v3? • Custom forms: We have this built into the API but need to make these a lot more flexible   Users/Deployers Two important features we want to build into v3 areworkflowsandbettervisualizations. Help us frame out: • What an ideal workflow for en election monitoring use case would look like • What kind of visualisations we should add into the platform • What analytics we should add into the platform Refreshments will be provided. NB: This is a physical event in Nairobi. We will do our best to make it available for people to join via a Google Hangout, but this is pending. We promise to try record it/have our virtual friends join in ;) Hope you can join us! Bring a friend too! ;)
