Register now for CiviCon Sydney: Feb 5-6 2013
Come to the inaugural CiviCon Downunder!!!
CiviCon is an opportunity to meet other people using, thinking about using, implementing or developing with CiviCRM along with some of the Core Team. You can learn from other people's experience, ask questions, and put faces to forum handles. It's also a chance to talk about what you are doing and sound out ideas. So, put 5th & 6th Feb in your calender, register your attendance and book your flights. If you happen to be close enough not to need to book flights please see the section below on helping out :-). February 5th will follow the format of previous CiviCons with the 6th being an opportunity for smaller group sessions, discussions and training.
As usual we are also doing training and sprints in the days before and after the CiviCon. Training will be on the 4th of February and there will be a code and documentation sprint in the following days - 8 to 14 February. Sprints are a great way to learn while also giving back and improving areas of CiviCRM that you are passionate about. It's also a chance to talk about your projects and problems in a bit more depth with other people. To take part in the documentation sprint all you need is a good attitude. For the code sprint you are expected to have a working local installation and some knowledge of working with code. (If you are on the fence between the two you can do a bit of both - e.g help with the developer documentation :-)).
Are you an integrator with an exciting case study? A developer who's built new tools for deployment, data migration or integration with other applications? We're accepting session proposals now.
Sponsorship makes CiviCRM possible. It also earns you karma points and makes you a little bit taller.
Please sponsor our first CiviCon down-under. Along with a huge amount of gratitude you will get your brand or organisation in front of many dedicated community leaders, technical wizards and organisational decision makers.
We are immensely grateful to the people who have already gotten involved in organising the sprint but would definitely welcome a few more. If you have any time or resources to volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gifts of time are also good for your altitude.
Come and have fun!
The CiviCRM community is a great community. Come and enjoy the great people, bad jokes and good food! Look forward to seeing you there.
