Today we are attending (as bronze sponsors) CiviCon 2011 in Chicago and the morning session was focused on where CiviCRM is today and where its going to go. As this is interesting to anyone either using CiviCRM or thinking about a CRM solution then we thought it useful to share the information.
Firstly, Kurund from the core team gave out a lot of thanks to the sponsors of the event and the core team working on CiviCRM.
Dave Greenburg, one of the co-founders then gave an update on the "State of the Union". Here are some highlights:
In 2010 the CiviCRM community grew considerably:
The 5th edition of the TOOL FAIR was a combination of "laboratories" and "markets" to discover and experience educational tools developed under the YOUTH IN ACTION and EUROMED YOUTH IV programmes.
A space was provided to share, to experiment, to discuss and further develop educational tools used within the different actions (youth exchanges, EVS, youth initiatives, seminars, training).
This week saw the launch of the rebranding of the Anna Lindh Foundations 1001 Actions for Dialogue website one of Consult and Designs major projects of 2008. The rebranding to "Dialogue in Action" comes after the highly successful project comes to an end, however the team at the Foundation wanted to keep the website alive due to its huge amount of returning visitors and registered users.
