A tapestry of attendee comments…
- Great community. Geared for all types of users including reviewers. A unique chance to connect with other CiviCRM users. A chance to learn about all the amazing ways people are employing Civi in the wild. Useful to meet others in the CiviCRM world, find ways to get support and learn about stuff you didn't know about previously.
- Great Networking with users and professionals. Hands down, would strongly recommend the expertise of presenters and quality content of sessions. The extensions talk by Jon Goldberg was worth the trip from LA. It was very valuable to hear Tim Otten's sharing about future directions.
- Lots of gratitude to the organizers for their collaborative processes, consistent communications and can-do mindset. Also for attracting knowledgeable expert presenters, attendees, CiviCRM core team representation and outstanding local sponsors. Great location.
Cividesk was very pleased to be part of CiviCamp Bay Area 2018 that took place on May 3rd at Preservation Park in Oakland, CA. It had been nearly 2 years since a CiviCRM event took place near San Francisco, the birthplace of our favorite Constituents Relationship Management (CRM) solution.

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.
I started last Sunday, 4 feb 2018 at FOSDEM (https://fosdem.org/2018/). What an experience, I have never seen so many geeks in one spot! It was great to dive in, look at all the stands And I had a nice chat at the CiviCRM stand. Good that we (as in the CiviCRM community) had a stand there and we all took turns. Thanks Tim, Mathieu, Jaap, Klaas, Michael, Alain, Rose, Fabian, Björn and Phil. Quite enjoyed the dinner afterwards too :-)
