London 2017 was my first time at a CiviCon event so not sure what to expect, but I have been to many business conferences over the years.  So, what was so different about this one?  Essentially, nothing; held in a major city i.e. London, in a conference centre, a welcome desk with a goody bag and a programme, introduction, sessions – you get the picture!

It’s hard to put your finger on why it was different - better - but I am sure it has to do with the ethos of CiviCRM and why the organisers and attendees were there; a shared vision and a unified purpose.

What exactly was different? Well, as soon as I walked into the main conference room, I felt I was amongst friends, like-minded people.

CiviCon UK Sponsor post: Registrations in seconds, logins without passwords

A big thank you to all our CiviCON UK Sponsors. Here's a special post from Gold Sponsor Yoti:

DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY: REGISTRATIONS IN SECONDS, LOGINS WITHOUT PASSWORDS AND MINIMISING DATA.

Over the last 15 years I’ve probably been responsible for around 50 or so websites or microsites that in some way or another have tried to gather people’s data.  Either to enter into an event, join a forum or buy something.  And like most other marketeers I’ve been obsessed by two things.  Funnels and Data. i.e how easily are people signing up and how much do I now know about my customers.  I’ve always known that by asking people for more information there was a danger people would drop out of my acquisition funnel but we marketeers are hungry for data. We want it all and we want it now.

Three blogs and pictures of the CiviCRM Sprint in the Eifel

This year we had a sprint after CiviCon Cologne. So far I have only been to a sprint in Edale UK. The Germans copied everything from that sprint, remote location with hardly any internet. But with Germans you know it is done well. So the internet was faster (but still slow). The remote location had a bbq place, swimming pool and sauna.

Following what was a successful annual gathering for CiviCRM community at CiviCON St. Louis, the traditional Sprint commenced boasting 35 in attendance including participants from New Zealand, UK, Canada, and folks from all over the US from the east to west coasts. The Sprint is an annual opportunity for the CiviCRM community to come together and work on developing the CiviCRM software in a context that allows face-to-face interaction as opposed to the usual remote work and conversations.

During the Sprint, a number of groups are created to work on different topics such as coding, marketing and documentation for the software.

CiviCon Cologne coming soon!

Less than one month and the CiviCon NW Europe will start for the first time in Germany. We are proud (and a bit nervous) to be the host this year, but we are sure that you will be well entertained by the different sessions. Around the conference, there will be a user training for beginners and a three-day sprint for those who can't get enough of CiviCRM... If you are not registered for the conference or one of the other events yet, you can do it here.

Why are you involved in the CiviCRM community?

It’s 5:45pm CDT on the final day of the CiviCRM St Louis conference and I’ve been walking for almost two hours, I have no clue where I am. I know I set off in the opposite direction to my hotel and I know I left the conference before it finished but I really didn’t think this through.

So what drove me to walk with the pure aim of just walking, akin to a mini TV version of Forest Gump?

One more reason to go to St. Louis – the City Museum

I'm sure many CiviCRMers are checking their schedules and and making travel arrangements for CiviCon St. Louis in May. While this post is a bit off-topic, I want to highlight a place in St. Louis like no other place on Earth... the City Museum. It's already on the list of things to do while at CiviCon, but in my opinion it should also be on a list of things to do while you're alive!

CiviCon London wrapped up last week, with over 150 attendees attending more than 30 information-packed sessions. It was great to have such engaging presentations, representatives from the core team talking about the direction of the project, and so many long-term contributors around. But for me, this is the most valuable thing about attending CiviCon...

This year, around 25 dedicated and fascinating people have gathered together in Edale, Peak District, to make improvements, discuss progress, and learn more about the CiviCRM project. Some have already left us and some will be here right up to the end of the weekend, but we have all contributed to the project in a helpful and constructive way.
