Building on GNOME technologies SDAPS provides a solution to easily run surveys or examinations on paper. Thanks to the powerful utilities such as Cairo and GTK+ it is surprisingly simple to create a project such as SDAPS with its efficient verification interface. This way SDAPS can handle most of the details and you can focus on creating high quality surveys and learning from the results. Thanks to its flexible python design it is possible to embed this tool into your custom workflow. This way it can cater to the various needs of researches, students, teachers or companies.
In this talk you will learn how SDAPS works, what it can be used for, and how you can contribute and extend it for your own needs.
