With around 75 people in attendance, boasting a variety of end users, developers and implementers representing countries such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and various states from across the US, CiviCon Colorado 2016 was the place to be! Fort Collins, Colorado made for a wonderful backdrop to greet this crowd for workshops, the conference, and the coding sprint that followed. Attendees enjoyed informal gatherings as well as a more formal reception al fresco to enjoy a beautiful Colorado evening with scenic mountain views.
Fort Collins, CO. Gorgeous mountain backdrops. Great minds from around the globe. What a great set up for a Code Sprint! Out of about 25 participants, Cividesk was proud to have the most representatives (3) of any other CiviCRM partner! One first-year participant shares her thoughts on the subject. Read more about this year's Sprint here!
CiviCRM has switched from using a wiki and Flossmanuals for primary documentation to a new platform called readthedocs which also has a well thought out set of conventions to follow. This change is expected to faciliate documentation and the wiki will no longer be the main source, though it may be used for other purposes moving forward.
There is still time to register for the 2016 CiviCon, May 31 through June 8, 2016! Visit https://colorado2016.civicrm.
The Conference (June 2 & 3) will be preceded by two days of role-specific training (May 31 & June 1), and will then be followed by a Sprint (June 4-8), where the Civi community will be building new features and ideas into CiviCRM.
We are excited to announce our new training opportunity Online Training: "Integrating CiviCRM with Drupal".
This two-hour online training session is designed for current users of CiviCRM and Drupal that have some experience with the administration of both platforms and would like to learn how CiviCRM and Drupal work together. The benefits of the integration allow you to display CiviCRM data and pages on your website, to collect data from a form on your website, to grant your Drupal users to edit data in CiviCRM database and much more.
For the fourth year in a row, Denver has had a growing and thriving CiviDay co-organized by Cividesk and Teaming 4 Technology. We welcomed nearly 45 attendees for an all-day event in the beautiful venue at the Mile High United Way.
Both Cividesk and Upleaf presented sessions in the morning. Then after lunch we continued full speed ahead in the afternoon with 2 different training sessions for new users and intermediate users and a co-working session where Cividesk and Upleaf teamed up as experts in the field to answer any questions related to CiviCRM.
We had about 20 participants, half of them totally new to CiviCRM, who came to discover more about the open source software. Other participants were either already involved in CiviCRM projects, current end-users or preparing to begin using CiviCRM.
Following the success of the event in 2015, our beautiful state of Colorado has been once again elected to host the annual North American CiviCon for 2016. CiviDesk is happy to continue to give back to the CiviCRM community by leading the organization of this event again this year.
