Carlos Capote (Amnesty),Pablo Sullivan (Movimiento por la Paz) and iXiam co-organized CiviDay in Madrid. Thanks to them, more than 60 people had the chance to enjoy this event (almost 90 registrations in civicrm.org)
The act was celebrated in Medialab-Prado
, a “citizen laboratory used to produce, investigate and broadcast cultural projects. It also explores forms of collaborative experimenting and learning that have emerged from digital networks”.
Michael McAndrew, CiviCRM's community manager; Alejandro Salgado from Ixiam and Carlos Capote from Amnesty spoke on behalf of CiviCRM.
During the presentation, the attendees learned more about this open source software tool that has already helped so many oganizations, NGOs and foundations of every shape and size. The event started off by going over some of the more technical aspects of this tool. After a break during which the attendees had the chance to chat with the speakers, there was a more interactive part where the attendees proposed a case and the speakers used a demo showing them possible solutions CiviCRM has to offer.
