TexasCamp 2016

This weekend the Skvare team attended TexasCamp, the first state-wide DrupalCamp! The Dallas conference attracted users and developers from all over the state to learn and network. Skvare showed community support with a Gold-level sponsorship. Since CiviCRM and Drupal work so well together, we shared some presentations that touched on the intersection of both.

Drupal as a learning platform

Mark Hanna shared information on a new open-source online learning system powered by CiviCRM and Drupal. This week's release of Skvare's Tin Can compliant Learning Record Store is a Drupal-native API that expands Drupal capabilities for flexible, open-source Learning Management Software. This open-source solution can significantly lower the barrier to entry for organizations seeking to implement an online learning program.

View the video that goes with the slides below.

 

 

Feel free to play around with the alpha release of Tin Can Learning Record Store code and let us know what you think.

Kate Shaw presented an intro to CiviCRM as software for nonprofits, discussing use cases for managing membership, special events, and crowdfunding.

Peter Petrik shared information on hosting and performance improvements and Personal URL's.

Thank you to LevelTen Interactive for organizing and hosting, and to our fellow sponsors, Pantheon, Amazee Labs and Acquia.
