Last year in February we started a series of CiviNYC work days. It consists of an event where we work and learn from each other for an afternoon, usually around 4 hours. Here's what it looks like.

Not too shabby!!!

Thanks to National  Urban League for hosting us again.

Thursday 23th and Friday 24th of March we are having a mini-sprint in the Ede (NL) in which we will fix CiviCRM bugs. We are with four of us already (Erik Hommel, Alain Benbassat, Klaas Eikelboom and me) so it is going to be fun! That is the main reason and the other reason is that we want to contribute to CiviCRM Core.

Our plan is to have two days for fixing CiviCRM bugs once in the month or once in the two months. But at least regularly and fitting to our busy schedule.

So if you are in the neighborhood we want to invite you for joining us so it going to be more fun.

The dates we have planned so far are:

  • Thursday and Friday 23th and 24th of March (in Ede, NL)
  • Thursday and Friday 18th and 19th of May (location to be decided, possibly Antwerp)

If you want to join us drop me a message on the chat or send me an e-mail on jaap.jansma@civicoop.org

You are invited to the first CiviCamp in the UK, brought to you in Manchester, the “uncrowned capital of the north”! Firstly, for those not familiar with the term, what is a CiviCamp? It’s a bit like a CiviCon, the annual conference for CiviCRM, where people gather for workshops and networking, to get a better idea of what CiviCRM is capable of and how to implement it more effectively in their own workplace.

This CiviCamp is mainly focused at users and those who are exploring CiviCRM to implement, but we also welcome implementers and developers to come and share their knowledge with others, and to pick up ideas from the community.

We already have some confirmed workshops, including: Introduction to CiviCRM, Using CiviEvents to manage training, Data Protection for the Third Sector, CiviHR, Open Data, CiviCRM and SMS, and the CiviBooking Extensions.

There will also be time to bring your own issues and questions in our ‘Birds of a Feather’ sessions to explore...

2nd  june 2016. we organized the first Budapest CiviCRM Meetup. Unfortunately  the attendance was low. We discussed the state of CiviCRM in Hungary, as now only 25 sites registered and 21 uses in Hungarian language.  Spent some time on the modules, shared our thoughts. Next Budapest CiviCRM Meetup will be in September this year.

CiviDay - our annual celebration of all things CiviCRM is coming up on Wednesday 24th February 2016. Find out what CiviCRM can do for you, meet others that are using CiviCRM nearby, and find out what CiviCRM services are available locally.

The core of CiviDay is a series of meet ups in different cities around the world. Last year, we had 26 across 3 continents. This year, we'd love to see more cities, more counties, and all continents represented (OK, maybe not Antarctica!).

CiviDay events are designed to be accessible to people with little or no experience of CiviCRM and are a great place to take your first steps into the CiviCRM world. People that have been using CiviCRM for a while are very welcome too - come along to find out about the latest developments and learn new tips and tricks, and also to share your experiences with others.

Check out https://civicrm.org/cividay-2016 for the...

Fresh off my first User Summit and I had some thoughts...

So yeah, I’ve been pretty active on the old CiviCRM forums and even more active on the new Stack Exchange setup.  I’ve successfully submitted three pull requests thanks to Coleman.  I’ve written a couple of blog posts.  I’ve set up a Make it Happen campaign.  My organization even made a donation to CiviCRM for all they have done for us over the years.  All the while, I've leaned on the...
