Just arrived back home after spending a few days with the CiviCRM community in Brussels. And as always I really enjoyed myself and returned inspired and full of inspiration.
We are thinking about creating a native CiviCRM extension Someone Else Pays.
I just published a small extension (funded by Amnesty International Vlaanderen) to prevent the REST API requests still coming through when the site is in maintenance mode.
The extension is CiviCRM native and the structure is based on the CiviCRM User Framework. However, as I have little to no experience with a CMS other than Drupal, I have only implemented the Drupal module. Would be really great if others could add the same trick for the other CMS's!
Some of you will know, use and might even love the CiviRules extension. We certainly do! Quite a few of the organizations we support with their CiviCRM stuff use and love it, and judging by the question on StackExchange and issues and pull requests on GitHub quite a few more do too!
This little story about financial transactions has a couple of objectives:
1. share what we want to do for the benefit of each and everyone
2. find out if there are more organisations out there that would be interested
3. even better, organisations out there that want to co-fund and influence!
This year we had the second CiviCon in North West Europe, which was in Woerden this year, a small town near Utrecht in The Netherlands. Before I tell you more about the event let me start by thanking our gold sponsors CiviCooP and Systopia and our bronze sponsors Orgis and IT4nonprofit. It would not have been possible without them!
Our customer Werk met Zin (Network of job coaches in Flanders) has a Wordpress site and uses CiviCRM to manage their relations and cases. On their Wordpress site they allow users to register for some events, which they solve with the civicrm event info and registration pages.
Last year saw the first CiviCon North West Europe, and this year there will be a sequence! The date is 26 May and the event will take place in Woerden, The Netherlands.
CiviCon North West Europe is THE place to:
We had a awesome CiviDay 2016 in Amersfoort yesterday! A record 40 participants made me happy before the day even started :-) The Socialist Party was our host for the day, and they had prepared a morning session where they shared their experiences with CiviCRM, showed what they did and explained what they want to do in the future. A really impressive and inspiring session with the underlying message: there is so much to gain if you start using open source software, become part of a community and feel you can actually have an impact on your toolset!
