As we gear up to work on our next major milestone release CiviCRM 4.4, there's been a considerable excitement within the team for our MIH campaign. We believe the new features and new improvements to existing features outlined for 4.4 definitely will add value to the CiviCRM software.
Based on our project plan, the fundraising deadline for the MIHs is 16th of June - that is just under two weeks away.
Taking a stock of where we stand as of today, I want to share the progress of MIH campaign 2013
Seeking community members to help shape CiviCRM’s future
The Musée d'Art et d'Histoire du Judaïsme (mahJ) is the largest French museum of Jewish art and history. Located in the Marais district of Paris, France, the museum’s permanent collection presents 700 objects and works of art (out of the 12,000 objects in its collection) that represent the history of Jewish communities in Europe and the Mediterranean from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Last week, stakeholders from the CiviCRM community came together to discuss issues of governance and sustainability, and to review recent developments in CiviCRM as well as how it’s managed. We called it a Governance Summit because there was a lot of interest in governance. Regardless, this was fundamentally a “Community Summit” where members of the community could work together to improve CiviCRM as a whole. This post is a recap of much of the work that took place at the summit.
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.
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).
