We had a good CiviCRM meetup in Apeldoorn today, hosted by De Goede Woning. Willem Peters from qbset (http://www.qbset.nl) showed the first version of qbMobile, a native iPhone/Android app that he is developing for a specific customer.

Bram Lipsch from De Goede Woning (http://www.degoedewoning.nl) showed the result of a long implementation project which is going live on 6th June, when roughly 75 people at De Goede Woning will start using CiviCRM as their relationship management system. They were supported by EE-atWork (http://www.ee-atwork.nl) in their project.

We spoke about creating some kind of payment processor for the Dutch market, where almost all web payments are done by iDeal and credit cards are hardly used. Most of the organizations present were interested, so we will start a Dutch Make it Happen project on the Dutch CiviCRM...

It was a great gathering of people from different backgrounds showing up for the meetup. By far this was one of the biggest meetups (30+ people) that I have attended. Nice to see the growth in the SF Bay Area civi community!

 

Meetup kicked off with a report back by Dave Greenberg of the CiviCRM team from CiviCon Chicago. He reviewed growth trends for the platform, and broad goals for the project going forward. You can download Dave's slides as well as most of the other CiviCon Chicago presentations here. This was followed by presentation by Arthur Richards from Wikimedia Foundation. He briefed everyone on how Wikimedia uses CiviCRM to manage 999,350+ contacts and 1,067,739+ contribution records. Arthur's presentation can be found...

We're very pleased to annouce that CiviCon is coming to London this August 22nd.

In the grand tradition of CiviCons, we've timed this one to co-incide with DrupalCon London (though we haven't gone quite as mad as they have with UK branding cliches).

There's a fair amount of organising going on already: we have a venue in the pipeline and have trainings and sprints (book, code, etc.) after DrupalCon.  We'll soon be releasing sponsorship options and starting session proposals, early bird registration, etc.

If you have any time or resources that you can devote to helping organise CiviCon London, we'd love to hear from you.  Email michal@civicrm.org and we'll add you to the CiviCon organising committee.

Looking forward to it already!
