A while ago, I gave a brief
preview of new CiviCRM's functionality in 2.0

the door.

it will contain some exciting new things. One of...

As some of you are aware, we have an excellent development team in Mumbai, India (managed by Web Access). Open source in india is starting to get more traction and we'd like to play our part in moving this along at a faster rate :)

CodeCamp Mumbai is happening this weekend. They were looking for sponsors and a couple of our developers were attending, so it made sense for us to step up and help pay for the event. You can read more about it here

We (dave greenberg and lobo) will be running a two day Developer's Bootcamp in San Francisco on December 10-11. This will be a working session, during which we will work through one or more actual client projects with defined requirements and workflow - and design (and implement - if time) a solution. We will also be reviewing CiviCRM architecture from the point of view of component developers - using specifications for a potential new component as a springboard. We'll take this opportunity to make improve CiviCRM from an extension / plugin perspective

The CiviCRM developer team will be getting together in Mumbai, India from Jan 14 - Jan 28. If there are developers working on CiviCRM in that part of the world, interested in getting more involved and/or some code sprints, please get in touch with us via email.

We are still in the early stages of the planning process, and hence are quite flexible at this stage. We expect to be working on 2.1 at that stage. We'd love to meet and interact with developers in Mumbai and India working on open source technologies.

This has been on our list of things to do, but we had not made any progress. Some example where this would be useful are:
  • Give me the set of all household's who have a household member residing in district X. More details here. The search form can be set to just include a text box for the household...
