A few of the NY based CiviCRM folks gathered together near Union Square in NY. We lucked into a pretty good meeting spot, thanx to fellow CiviCRM'er Chris P. We had 10 people participate in this meetup. This included a couple of folks who were in the investigative stages regarding CiviCRM. The agenda and some of the highlights include:
This is an old report, Check the latest report here: CiviCRM gets a solid A in the 2009 Data Ecosystem Survey Report (we did even better this time around!)
We just concluded our second boot camp in San Francisco earlier today. Running a boot camp is a bit harder than it seems. We'd like to thank the good folks from Chicago Techonology Cooperative (Tom, Brandon), Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) (Blake, Patricia) and USPIRG/FFPIR (Wes) for attending and being willing and gracious bootcamp participants
Kurund and Lobo will be in New York City on Dec 19th / 20th. We will tailor the session based on the needs of the folks who sign up :)
If you are interested please send me an email (lobo at yahoo dot com) along with ideas on what you'd like the session to be about. We'd love to get some user feedback, comments and critique of CiviCRM. We'll spend some time explaining a few things coming in CiviCRM v2.0
We will be hosting the meetup on Dec 19th at 9:00 am - 11:00 am at:
CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) 123 4th Ave, 2nd FL New York, NY 10003 212-677-8621
We conducted our first ever developer bootcamp for a group of developers from TechSoup. The bootcamp was spread over two days and four sessions. Each session was approx three hours long. Overall we felt the bootcamp was a success. We also ended up with a couple of new features for CiviCRM v2.0.
Last week, another one of excellent events organised by Aspiration happened in Zagreb. It was Open Translation Tools 2007 and it covered a variety of topics, starting from cultural aspects of both content and software localisation, through managing open communities, mapping translation and localisation tools and resources, also including machine translation mechanics.
We’re happy to announce that CiviCRM 2 will be licensed under the freshly-released GNU Affero General Public License Version 3.
We have slipped the code freeze release date by a week for CiviCRM 2.0 to Dec 10, 2007. At this point, we have not changed the other dates on the schedule. We are hoping to meet those dates, but this being the holidays and given our travel / consulting / camp schedule, we might slip the other dates by a week or two.
A while ago, I gave a brief preview of new CiviCRM's functionality in 2.0 on this blog. "Two-point-oh" was a bit of a "wild dreams" back than - but it didn't really lasted long when we got into the stage where this milestone version is behind the door.
