We’re continuing to use Gitlab (https://lab.civicrm.org/explore/groups) more and more as both a project management and development tool. One area that we’ve been tinkering with over the past several months is using Gitlab for feature requests in CiviCRM. As you can imagine, there’s real potential here to empower the CiviCRM community to create, discuss and promote new features and functionality in CiviCRM. There’s also potential to create a very long, very unorganized list of “to-do’s” that can serve as points of contention...

The recent DevCamp in New Jersey presented several sessions on new developments in CiviCRM land as well as showcased several of its inner workings. One session presented by Core Team member Tim Otten stood out for me: Form Builder. If you’re like me, you listen to folks like Tim with a great deal of respect and appreciation for what they say (and do).

CiviCRM-Anwender, -Implementierer und -Interessierte zusammenbringen: Das ist das Ziel der CiviCamps, die von der CiviCRM-Community auf der ganzen Welt veranstaltet werden.

Nachdem es im letzten Jahr ein CiviCamp im Köln gab, hat diesmal Software für Engagierte e.V. die Initiative übernommen: Weil es in Halle und Leipzig besonders viele CiviCRM-Anwender gibt, organisieren wir das nächste CiviCamp hier. Besonders charmant dabei: Das Peißnitzhaus e.V., in dem das CiviCamp stattfindet, arbeitet selbst mit CiviCRM!

Was ist ein „CiviCamp“?...

As our North American colleagues (and those who have made the big trip over there) head into the governance sprint now seems like a good time to recap on product maintenance in CiviCRM. Product maintenance, as I discuss, is the monthly routine processes we do to incorporate patches & contributions into the CiviCRM product. This blog is kinda long & weedsy - so if it’s not for you then take a look at this baby octopus instead.
