CiviCRM at Wikimedia Netherlands

1. What was the ambition when you started with CiviCRM?

Automating membership administration, event management en managing our donors.  We also wanted to combine our data from memberships, events, donations and relations so it would be easier to maintain and share our knowledge. Finally we wanted a link between the forms on our website and our CRM system.

Case Study: Sprout Creek Farm streamlines/centralizes processes under Drupal/CiviCRM

Sprout Creek Farm is a functioning educational farm that produces award-winning artisan cheeses in addition to its educational programming. We've recently worked with them to streamline their website and the way they manage donations, registrations, cheese sales, and contact data. We tried to provide an on-ramp to the life of the Farm as much as possible via a short background video on the homepageas well as by featuring their incredible library photos in the background on interior pages.

Would you like coffee while you wait sir?

If you are as guppy-minded as I am then slow page loads can send you into a bit of a spin. While that little icon whirs I start to engage in some checking behaviour (facebook, email, IRC), which leaves me with enough to ponder that I go to grab a cup of tea. Coming back I wonder where I got to, click refresh and the cycle starts again.

Let the 4.7 beta testing begin!

Finally 4.7.beta1 has been released. Its now your chance to bring out your inner Sherlock and help make the software we all use and love even better.
