CiviCRM Meetup em Lisboa?

1 week 5 days ago

Olá desde Lisboa! Sou o Josh e sou um membro da equipa principal do CiviCRM. Estou neste momento sediado em Lisboa e, após conversar com algumas organizações sem fins lucrativos, comecei a pensar organizar um encontro mensal em Portugal para dar a conhecer o CiviCRM e também para dar formação e apoio. Usas CiviCRM ou estás interessado em aprender? Vives em Lisboa?


We're not alone...

2 weeks ago

In early July we announced that the contributor log as we know it would come to an end, replaced by time tracking in Gitlab (the official cutover day is August 15, by the way). And, shortly thereafter, we began a discussion within the Core Team about how we manage, track and value contributions to the project. We’ve also been discussing with various stakeholders how CiviCRM is funded, and invariably we end up reviewing both financial support and in-kind contributions.

(Development) Towards a clean build of CiviCRM on Drupal 8

3 weeks 4 days ago

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”. I wanted to spend a moment to discuss the concept which ties them together: the clean install process, which will make Civi-D8 an equal member of the Civi CMS club and a good base for continued development and maintenance.

CiviCRM Melbourne Meetup - all about Contacts

1 month ago

Come along to the second meetup of 2019, a workshop style session discussing challenges submitted by attendees in advance. 

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.

Suggested topics from the following items:


Current Status of Drupal 8 and CiviCRM

1 month ago

For starters, over 200 Drupal 8 sites already run CiviCRM!  This post is based on my own research and conversations with those involved, and is intended to be informative and encouraging.  As you may know, CiviCRM works with no less than four CMS at the moment, including three versions of Drupal, two 'officially'.   Understandably with Drupal 7 end-of-support scheduled for Nov 2021, there has been recent discussion amongst those using or considering Drupal about which to use for your website.

My first CiviCamp (in Dutch)

2 months 3 weeks ago

Maandag 13 mei was het zover. Mijn eerste CiviCamp. Ik werk inmiddels al een paar jaar met CiviCRM en het leek me goed om wat meer betrokken te zijn bij de community. Ik vond het wel spannend. Ik heb immers geen verstand van ICT, ik heb een sociale opleiding gedaan. Ik ben coördinator van een maatjesproject en gebruik CiviCRM om vast te leggen wie maatje van wie is. We zijn een kleine organisatie met slechts twee parttime medewerkers, maar ik zou mijn werk niet kunnen doen zonder CiviCRM.
