Mapping it in 5-10min - a CiviCON 2016 Lightning Talk

Someone asked me to post this here - so that he can give it a try!

I did a Lightning Talk at CiviCON 2016 showing how you can put your Contacts on a Leaflet Map. It only takes a few minutes to put your CiviCRM Contacts on a Leaflet Map if you're using Drupal. Leaftlet is an open-source JavaScript Library for interactive maps. In addition what's really cool is that you can color the PIN based on the value of a CiviCRM custom field!

I've posted the details in a QA format including some of my slides from my CiviCON Lightning Talk on CiviCRM's StackExchange site:

CiviCRM: Going Mobile

Anyone who has tried to login to their CiviCRM database via their phone knows the feeling: utter helplessness. You would even be forgiven for thinking CiviCRM is actively hostile to the small screen.

CiviCRM Entity - Working with CiviCRM Contacts on Drupal Node Edit Forms Using Inline Entity Form

It's becoming a common request from our clients to find user-friendly ways to integrate CiviCRM data with the rest of their Drupal website functionality. Oftentimes content creators without direct user access to CiviCRM need to do simple things, such as create, update, and delete contacts in simple, specific ways.

CiviCRM Entity -- Upcoming and Future Development

CiviCRM Entity is a Drupal module which greatly enhances CiviCRM integration with Drupal. This module exposes many CiviCRM entities as true Drupal entities. That means that almost any module can use Drupal entities. As a result, these modules can access and manipulate CiviCRM data directly from within Drupal via Drupal’s Entity API.
