CiviCRM sprints are a tremendous opportunity to get involved with the community while supporting the project. But, they can be a bit off-putting for non-developers because there is often a perception that they’re geared towards writing code. There are always opportunities for non-developers to get involved with CiviCRM, and this year’s post-CiviCon Colorado sprint is no different.
We are really excited about CiviCon happening on June 2nd and 3rd 2016 at the Colorado State University. It is a great opportunity to attend a world-class conference where you will meet and learn from the people in the CiviCRM community and other CiviCRM users.
Most people going to Vail, CO go to ski. However, some come to work on making CiviCRM even better. High up in the Colorado Rocky Mountains ten people got together to squash bugs, work on CiviCRM for Drupal 8, enhance CiviCRM for WordPress, improve the payment processing tools, and update the end-user documentation.
Hello! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Angela Bruns and I will be Conference Coordinator for the North American CiviCon 2016 in Fort Collins, CO. My background is in event planning and volunteer management within Colorado nonprofit organizations and I am excited to be a part of this conference.
Want to help CiviCRM integrate with Drupal8 (or Backdrop or WordPress)? Want a winter getaway and a chance to go skiing? Hey, you can have both!
Come join us for the CMS-Integration Sprint in Vail, CO Jan 30 to Feb 4 2016.
Big thanks for Nicolas Ganivet at CiviDesk for sponsoring this event and generously donating the venue!
We'll be working on:
If you (and your colleagues/users) are an English native speaker, DON'T READ THIS. You don't have to bother. Lucky you.
The rest of the world: Here's your chance to get rid of those weird translations that you just cannot get right for all the places it's used...
We have just completed the fourth day of the sprint. Progress reports are in from all of the teams and much progress has been made.
