As part of the UK CiviCamp event in October, we are also offering two-day Administrator Training and two-day Residential Developer Training on CiviCRM.

  • Administrator Training: October 3rd and 4th, 9am to 5pm
  • Developer Training: October 8th and 9th, 9am to 5pm

The Administrator Training is for users who want to upskill and have more control over their CiviCRM database, to better understand the components and how to customise the site. It’s also useful for organisations who are about to implement CiviCRM in their workplace and want to get a head start, and for developers who want a better understanding of the user experience.

Over the two days, you will cover the functionality of each of the CiviCRM components and set-up, as well as the potential customisations available. There are lots of practical and hands-on exercises to help increase your confidence, so...

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.

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 :-)

Monday 5 feb 2018 was the first CiviCamp Brussels. A crowd of about 80, great location at Muntpunt and interesting sessions and roundtables. Quite a few showcases of users sharing...
