CiviCooP and Systopia and Palasthotel have been working together on CiviProxy and CiviProxy. This blog is a round up of what we have achieved in the last couple of days. The first thing we have achieved is that we had fun and a very good work atmosphere. We made long days and made lots of progress.

What are CiviProxy and CiviMcRestFace?

Just a heads up for the community that "Using CiviCRM" by Joe Murray and Brian Shaughnessy is Packt Publishing's free book of the day. See https://www.packtpub.com/packt/offers/free-learning.

This book is a good overview of the system despite being written for a much older version of CiviCRM. In particular the early chapter on planning your CRM implementation is still applicable and valuable information that is often overlooked.

Developer Documentation: Goodbye Wiki. Hello MkDocs!

TL;DR: A migration project is underway to bring wiki content into the Developer Guide.

The wiki is kind of like that drawer in your kitchen where you put things that seem useful but don't really have "a place". And it works okay, especially when its your kitchen, because you have a decent idea of what you've chucked in there over the years.

If you haven't checked it out yet, the CiviCRM Stack Exchange is a Q&A site where folks can get free support for using CiviCRM.

It's simple to use - ask a question, get answers.  Users vote on both questions and answers, and there's no chit-chat, just answers.  You earn reputation points when people vote for your questions and answers.  Many top CiviCRM experts use the site and answer questions.

Experiments with read the docs

A while ago I did a test migration of CiviCRM's user and admin documentation to gitbook and said that I'd also do a migration to readthedocs so we could compare the two.  I finally got round to completing the readthedocs migration so wanted to share with you some impressions so far, the advantages and disadvantages are of both systems.
