Despite torrential rains yesterday, New York City's first CiviCRM Co-Working day was a hit. A diverse group of people representing workers unions, religious organizations, Occupy Wall Street, The Drupal Association and more gathered to work together. The morning started out withOUT coffee and donuts (we can blame the rain) yet everyone buckled down to work with Dave and Lobo standing by on IRC to answer any questions. After breaking for lunch and a case study presentation midday,  the true collaboration began with many questions asked and answered.

Following on our wonderful CiviCon day in Berkeley, several CiviCRM "evangelists" arrived at the Hilton Hotel in downtown San Francisco to help spread the word about Civi at NTEN's annual conference. Kurund and I arrived about 30 minutes before our morning session - "Is CiviCRM Right for Your Organization". The hotel was buzzing with non-profit technologists and vendors - lots of flashy signage for the large proprietary software vendors of course. But more importantly lots of folks who work in the incredible array of non-profits that belong to NTEN - networking, sharing, learning, looking for ways to help make their organizations work more effectively.


Several folks from consultancies that implement CiviCRM came to the session to help answer questions and showcase Civi projects - Frank Gomez and Michael Daryabeygi from Gingko Street Labs, Lisa Rau and Ashma Shrestha from Confluence, and Andrew Hunt from AGH Strategies.

Just a quick shout out to all those who attended the Philly CiviCRM meet up earlier this month.

I thought the session was excellent.  2 hours straight of Q&A with a host questions and a lot of excellent experience shared.  I think we all learned a lot and are looking forward to our next meetup.

Register for our Q2 Meet up here


If you're in the Philly area on June 12,  we'd love to see you.  Hopefully Byron won't eat all of the Oreo's next time!

It's the code sprint next week here in London, at CAN in Old Street, and hopefully we'll have quite a few people coming along to join in for all or some of it. Lobo and Kurund are coming over, which we're excited about :) On Thursday, after a hard day's sprinting, we'll be rolling round the corner to The Book Club for a bit of a hang out.

The first North of England meetup took place on the 12th of January 2012. It was really well attended with fifteen attendees. The attendess consisted of people interested in CiviCRM, users, implementers and developers. Some of these people had travelled quite a long way to get there and we were really pleased to see them.


The focus of the meetup was to start to create a community of people interested in CiviCRM across the North of England and secondly to create a forum by which those looking at using CiviCRM can come along for practical advice.
