Last Wednesday was a packed usergroup with more than 25 people squeezed into our meeting room in Scrutton Street. We were split more or less evenly between end users and developers/implementors, and between current and new users. There was a definite Drupal bias in the room, but there were some vocal Joomla implementors too. It was good to see familiar faces from last years developer camp and user training, as well as people that have started using CiviCRM in the past few months, and those that are just starting out.
v3.1 includes several COOL new features:
Step up and help out!Beta releases are a great occasion to get involved in CiviCRM community. There are many ways you can help make this release better and bug free.
- Integrator (Jan 21) and Developer Training (Jan 22) in Boston.
- Developer training on February 8 - 9, 2010 in Brussels.
- User (April 7), Integrator (April 11) and Developer (April 12) training in Atlanta.
- User (April 18) and Integrator (April 18) training in San Francisco.
- The first CiviCon - April 22, 2010 immediately after DrupalCon San Francisco. More details on this in future blog posts.
How much server (disk space and memory) do I need to run my CiviCRM implementation....
The answer is, of course, it depends. But what are the critical factors?
-- Data base size (Number of contacts and number of custom data fields, relationships, groups, etc.)
-- Number of users (light usage vs. heavy usage)
-- What other applications will be running? (A CMS with a small data base or Jasper Reports with a lot of simultaneous users.)
I think it would be good to put forth some guidelines or rules of thumb.
