## Internal meeting and hackathon

In November we had an internal meeting and public hackathon in Berlin.
Our internal meeting was an opportunity for the core OONI team to meet
in person, work together, and redefine our roadmap for the next six
months. As part of the hackathon, we had the opportunity to engage many
new individuals with our project, and to share skills and knowledge.

A report on the activities carried out as part of the internal meeting
and public hackathon can be found here:

Our notes from the sessions we held as part of OONI's internal meeting
can be found here:

## Mobile client development effort

The iOS and Android GUI has been totally redesigned, you can see how it
looked before and  how it looks now
  * iOS : https://github.com/measurement-kit/ooniprobe-ios/issues/43
  * Android : https://github.com/measurement-kit/ooniprobe-android/issues/19
Furthermore, some algorithms in the app have been rewritten to be more
stable and adapted to the new GUI.

We also reviewed the roadmap and some milestones for next months have
been added, in the ideal app we plan to be able to schedule tests, run
them in backgound and also be activated from a remote notification.

## Measurement userbase

Our network coverage has been steadily increasing. During the month of
November we received measurements from 54 different countries covering
124 unique network vantage points.

During the month of November ooniprobe was run more than 8,000 times.
