6:30pm - Drupal Presentation I:
Topic: Introduction to Drupal 8 and CiviCRM
CiviCRM is an open source CRM that works with Drupal 7, Wordpress, Joomla, and now Drupal 8. This talk will introduce the functionality of the CiviCRM, explain how it works with Drupal 8 and where it might be a good (or bad) fit for an organisation or not-for-profit. We'll also explore the new "one-line" composer install that finally makes getting it running much easier than it's ever been before.
