  • Make sure you know when and how you'll be meeting with your mentor.

Before Week 2 (Sept 19): First Cohort Call (Open by Design)

Before Week 3 (Sept 26): Mentorship call

  • Look up two other projects and comment on their issues with feedback on their vision statement.

Vision / mission statement.

I鈥檓 working with communities of code curious and code enthusiasts, of sex educators and period trackers to make fertility and period tracking more transparent but also more secure, so that people who menstruate can use technology that serves as a tool to help getting to know their own bodies and health better.

I love your project and would use it myself once it is ready!

Here are my suggestions regarding your vision (actually just the clarity of it):

  • I wondered if period trackers stands for people who track their own periods or developers of other period trackers (like Clue for example?), would be great to clarify! I suppose the first.
  • When you say "to make fertility and period tracking more transparent " do you mean make the code & data tracking and storage behind it more transparent? I am not sure if making the period tracking itself more transparent is sth people would want? So adding the word "technology" might solve the problem
    -"so that people who menstruate can use technology that serves as a tool to help getting to know their own bodies and health better." I would stress that the value coming from your app is that people can use a tool that is not only helping them monitor their health but also makes their data secure Eg "(...) their own bodies and health better without worrying about their data being used in ways they are not aware of" or sth similar.

Crossing fingers for your project!

I Love that you used the term 'People who menstruate' rather than 'Women' It's very inclusive of non-binary and trans people who menstruate.

You may also want to consider the way that you focus and use 'fertility' though as this can be a tough topic for trans/non-binary folks and a source of dysphoria and discomfort.

You also may want to have a think about what kind of features could be done for those on hormone blockers/testosterone when they transition FTM can do to the body and the menstruation cycles. Perhaps users could add in when they take their hormone pills/injections and monitor that. Trans folks may also want to track things like body changes and hair growth etc. (but this may be a bit further out there product wise)

As a trans/non-binary person who menstruates I would happily help out with anything on this topic.

TODO Comment on target group & add to repository's README

  • Clarifying use cases and personas
  • Documenting additional use cases / personas for future development:
    • for ppl who start menstruating (menarche)
    • for ppl who stop menstruating (hormone therapy or menopause)
    • for pregnancy
    • for post-partum
    • tracking menstrual cycles and chronic disease that might affect each other

You've got a very clear vision and it shows :) The README is also already very detailed and wisely allows potential contributors to get up-and-running quickly.

Two FOSS menstrual apps I'm aware of:
https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.log28/

https://f-droid.org/en/packages/de.arnowelzel.android.periodical/

...not sure if the codebase for those is helpful or not.
