CiviCamps are casual, locally-organized one day events bringing together CiviCRM users, experts and those who want to discover what CiviCRM is and what it can do. This year, Software für Engagierte e.V., an association of CiviCRM users, came up with the plan to organize annual CiviCamps in Germany. 43 users, experts and interested organizations attended the first camp that took place November 15th in Halle (Saale).

The event location Peißnitzhaus Halle was the perfect place to have the camp: The small castle is currently restored for public use by a local non profit organization, which itself manages its contacts, donations and many more with CiviCRM. Even contracts for room rentals are produced automatically within CiviCRM. Beside a...

CiviCRM-Anwender, -Implementierer und -Interessierte zusammenbringen: Das ist das Ziel der CiviCamps, die von der CiviCRM-Community auf der ganzen Welt veranstaltet werden.

Nachdem es im letzten Jahr ein CiviCamp im Köln gab, hat diesmal Software für Engagierte e.V. die Initiative übernommen: Weil es in Halle und Leipzig besonders viele CiviCRM-Anwender gibt, organisieren wir das nächste CiviCamp hier. Besonders charmant dabei: Das Peißnitzhaus e.V., in dem das CiviCamp stattfindet, arbeitet selbst mit CiviCRM!

Was ist ein „CiviCamp“?

Das „CiviCamp“ ist eine ganztägige Konferenz mit zwei parallelen Vortragsreihen: Eine Reihe mit Vorträgen für Leute, die sich für CiviCRM interessieren oder es auch bereits selber verwenden. Und eine andere Reihe für Leute, die schon viel über CiviCRM wissen, und jetzt noch mehr lernen möchten. – über die neuesten Entwicklungen und Extensions, und raffinierte Lösungsansätze für alltägliche...
