We are excited to announce the CiviCRM conference in Brussels in February 2018!

User Conference

The 1-day user conference (aka CiviCamp) on Monday 5 February 2018 is the conference for seasoned CiviCRM users, and people considering using CiviCRM. The conference will be packed with the essential presentations, workshops and people that will help your organisation get the most from CiviCRM.

Sprint

Following the user conference, there will be a non-residential 4-day sprint for contributors.

Having made amazing strides over the last year in terms of the user interface, some of the folk attending this years UK CiviSprint took a look at what improvements could be made in terms of accessibility.   Issues have been raised in recent years by screen reader users and people who are not comfortable using a mouse or trackpad.  After testing the new bootstrap-based Shoreditch theme, with a variety of assistive technology, several issues were identified and put to the team of developers.

Writing on the train back to London from the CivicCRM Sprint at Duvale Priory in mid-Devon, I can see why some people are willing to travel from across the world for the Sprint: it is a great way to spend a week. I went for the Developer Training, delivered by Parvez and Raj of Veda Consulting. The training was held for two days alongside a week's sprint (5 days + 2 travel days). I stayed for the rest of the Sprint.

Following CiviCon London many of us made our way to Devon for the CiviSprint. 
 
A group of around 40+ developers, installers and users gathered together for 6 days to work jointly on CiviCRM projects. By coming together in one place, we were able to move projects forward in a way that is challenging when everyone is scattered around the world and involved in their own work and family commitments. The overall aim being to take CiviCRM forward by sharing knowledge.

This was my first sprint; I came somewhat prepared from reading other ‘first sprint’ blogs in that I brought a laptop set up with Ubuntu and Buildkit. Beyond that technical hurdle I came with no ideas of what to expect, hoping that I could both learn and contribute.

The sprint was at a beautiful old house in the middle of a large farm in Maryland complete with cows, a fire pit, and cable Internet (albeit probably the thinnest cable any of us have experienced in awhile)!

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?
