Once a year Software für Engagierte e.V., an association of German CiviCRM users, organizes a national CiviCamp in Germany. This year it took place in Hamburg at November, 18 and was visited by 68 users, developers and interested people from all parts of Germany and even from Austria and Switzerland, with one participant each.

On the initiative of Ulrich Meyer-Martin and Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli, the task of hosting CiviCamp had been taken on by the Hamburg CiviCRM community. And they delivered: As many as five local organisations presented their use cases, even more local enthusiasts pitched in.

Maandag 13 mei was het zover. Mijn eerste CiviCamp. Ik werk inmiddels al een paar jaar met CiviCRM en het leek me goed om wat meer betrokken te zijn bij de community. Ik vond het wel spannend. Ik heb immers geen verstand van ICT, ik heb een sociale opleiding gedaan. Ik ben coördinator van een maatjesproject en gebruik CiviCRM om vast te leggen wie maatje van wie is. We zijn een kleine organisatie met slechts twee parttime medewerkers, maar ik zou mijn werk niet kunnen doen zonder CiviCRM.

Bij binnenkomst merkte ik een ontspannen sfeer van ons-kent-ons. Ik zag veel mannen met laptops, soms in groepjes bij elkaar. Achterin de zaal stonden een hoop koffers en bagage. Ik zag iemand met een programmaboekje. Hij bestudeerde de tabel met programmaonderdelen alsof het een wiskunde opgave was en zette kruisjes bij interessante workshops zoals een kind dat doet bij speelgoed in de intertoys folder.  Ik bemachtigde ook een programmaboekje en probeerde wijs te worden uit alle Engelse...

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...
