In the coming weeks, you can expect a series of changes going into the development pipeline to support the CiviCRM-Drupal 8 integration. Individually, these will seem unrelated and disjoint - they may not explicitly reference “D8”.

This session will focus on 'Contacts' - we invite participants to 'lead' on a topic, and share your experiences with the group. 

Although it seems an obvious topic, there's a lot more to Contacts than meets they eye, and being the primary 'entity' in the CiviCRM database, a lot hangs on getting them right.

That’s the case with work that’s currently underway that addresses CiviCRM’s export interface.
