About [Prototype Fund](https://prototypefund.de/)
*Prototype Fund is a project of the [Open Knowledge Foundation Germany](https://okfn.de/), which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research ([BMBF](https://www.bmbf.de/en/index.html)). Individuals and small teams receive a grant to test and develop open source tools and applications in the fields of civic tech, data literacy, data security and others.*
*The Prototype Fund team support the candidates in their application process, keeping things as unbureaucratic as possible and adjusting it to the needs of software developers, hackers and creatives. In short: the Prototype Fund brings iterative software development and government innovation funding together.*
*In the next three years about 40 projects will be funded. In total, the BMBF will grant 1.2 million euros in support of these projects.*
The video is based upon the design of the Prototype Fund identity and website, developed by the wonderful team at [Rainbow Unicorn](http://rainbow-unicorn.com/)

water quality data set
Germany - open data seems to be lacking:
http://global.census.okfn.org/entry/de/water
dataset updated demo?
DAT community screenshots?
00:00:49
My name's Karissa McKelvey, I'm an open source programmer and Ph.D drop out.
I studied the relationship between online communication and political events.
00:01:04
I got really frustrated with the data problems I was having and I started getting involved in data tools and visualization.
And that has led me to do more open source data tools. And now I'm grant-funded and nonprofit and traveling the world doing cool data stuff.
### What is DAT?
DAT is a tool for sharing data.
00:01:42
We focus on keeping data open and reusable, reproducible.
So we really focus on making sure that big data as well as small data can be replicated.
So it's kind of like Git but we really have good defaults for large data sets, and like, randomly accessing data within a big data set.
So it's kind of, a really nice way to do distributed filesharing.
### What kind of use cases are there for DAT?
00:02:30
If a data analyst goes to a data portal and wants to study water quality.
They might get a data set from that.
They might go to another data portal from another city and get that data set and then they go to another data portal...
What happens if one of those 100 dataportals that they go to changes their data.
They won't actually know unless they go back to the data portal and look for that data again.
So there's a really big problem with updating and keeping track of data as it changes.
Github is pretty good at solving that problem, you can see the history of data but we really need something that is good for data,
00:03:10
so we think that there is a serious problem in the way that people track and manage changes to datasets, specifically in open data.
So someone might turn the dataset that they're using on a data portal into a DAT and so instead of having to go to the website every time you just say "Oh are there any updates today?"
And it's more like a 'pull' model, so on my computer I can go "oh, there's an update for this data set" and I don't have to go back to that data portal again.
### In what ways does working with a community influence your work?
00:04:00
I like the idea of testing early, testing often with the community.
00:04:04
So we're going to build any sort of tool really get out there and talk to the people as soon as possible, the community should be informing everything that you're doing with the tool.
00:04:40
I really appreciate transparency with communities because the more transparent you are with a community, then the more input that you're getting and the better everything is going to be what your building is going to be.
00:04:59
So transparency through open source, transparency through how you're getting funded, transparency through your documentation or just how you manage.
00:05:14
There's a lot of ways to be transparent.
00:05:17
And I think that being transparent directly influences the community and the community will influence you in a good way.
### What are the long term goals for DAT and how have your goals changed over time?
00:05:38
So DAT first started as a prototype project funded by the Knight foundation so $50000 for six months of work, and it first started as a data sharing tool for open government and journalism.
And it was focused on, like, tabular data and then the Sloan foundation came in and wanted to fund it for even larger data sets that scientists might use as well.
And we finally realized after a lot of user testing and we went through two different versions that having a structured data thing was actually
00:06:20
making things more difficult.
And if you have something that's more file-based like Dropbox or Git, it's more, it's easier to just start using it and then you can add structured stuff on top.
So this is like a third version and we've this is our third grant as well.
### What are the limitations of DAT right now?
00:07:19
We want to make it as simple as possible so we're not trying to do all 100 different things, we're trying to do one thing really well.
00:07:27
So the limitations you know are if you want to do something slightly more complicated with a lot of features you're going to have to contribute to that and do it yourself it's more of a DIY open source tool right now.
So if you're looking for like a magic box is going to fix all your problems, it's like less on that end, and more on the experimental side still.
But we're actually pretty close to 1.0 release which is pretty stable.
We just want more applications to be built on it and over time the ecosystem will mature and they'll be more recipes and things like that.
00:08:05
But right now it's kind of wild wild west
### What advice would you give to someone was starting a new open source software project?
00:08:35
Advice I would say start early and publish often, release often and test often.
Don't develop in a vacuum in the corner of your room go outside - anywhere outside - like coffee shop, like library like wherever and just like to talk about it, and get people to use it, even if it's just like really simple.
00:09:04
Because if you have a good idea the chances are that as long as you have something that kind of works she'll start getting other people who want to help.
And then you can start building a team. And then once you start building a team you know you can move a lot faster. So I'd be like my first thing is just start.
Just go.
Just start doing it and talking to people about it even if it's not 100 percent working.
### How important is human-centered design in the first phase?
00:09:30
The hard part usually is like that intersection of like how can I make this but really good for humans but also do the technical things it needs to do that I think are the interesting parts but the human side you know if you have the most
00:10:14
technical interesting thing ever like if it's not human usable is no one's going to use it. And so the human-centered design should come first. And if you're able to visualize what you want it to do and explain it to someone else then once you have it, once you've built that, then you can just go back and see if it actually worked the way you thought it was going to work.
### What do you think are the strengths and pitfalls of public funding?
00:11:55
I would say the biggest problem with that is just you know you have to write out these really long proposals that might be different entirely different skill set than something like actually building or executing the thing that you're writing. So usually I think it requires a bigger team because you need more people who like write and talk to grant closers(?) and prepare the project.
00:12:44
The strength is that it's publicly funded and you're probably doing something that people actually need in the real world that the market wouldn't do. So corporations are really good at doing something that people will buy. But that's not necessarily something that people need.
00:13:11
So one of the great things about public funding is if you're able to get it, then you can work on something that maybe is like transformational for society. Because nobody else is doing it because it doesn't make money or something. So that's one of the
00:13:23
exciting things, most exciting thing that motivates me is I'm able to work on projects that just can't be solved in the market
