Nonprofit Success Pack: Radically Accessible Open Source

NOTE:  Location Change  -  Tonight's event will be held at the same location, but on the 4th Floor as opposed to the normal 5th floor.

We're pleased to present Judi Sohn and Jason Lantz from Salesforce.org! The open source Salesforce.org Nonprofit Success Pack has grown to 150k+ users in seven years by combining a proprietary cloud, corporate philanthropy, and open source product delivery. Allowing users to freely launch an enterprise class version of the software has contributed to that growth but also raises challenges of how to engage such a rapidly growing and largely non-technical community. Learn about Salesforce.org product delivery using tools such as CumulusCI and Heroku, and how you can get involved and use these technologies in your own projects.

This Meetup is hosted by CRM Science and Intelligent Office. Food and drink will be provided at 6:00pm. The presentation will start at 6:45pm. 

We'll have some awesome Salesforce swag prizes!

Speakers:

Judi Sohn, Manager, Open Source Community, Salesforce.org.
Judi Sohn has been actively involved in the nonprofit technology community since 2006 when she was managing operations for a colorectal cancer advocacy organization. Since then, she has worked for both product and consulting partners who serve nonprofit organizations on the Salesforce platform. She holds four Salesforce certifications and was named a Salesforce MVP in 2011. At Salesforce.org, she manages and facilitates community contributions to open source projects, including the Nonprofit Success Pack

Jason Lantz, Lead Release Operations Engineer, Salesforce.org.
Jason Lantz has been an active user of open source since first installing Linux in 1996. After starting in systems administration, he moved into building web applications mostly in Python. His passion for open source merged with a passion for nonprofits in 2008 which led him towards his current role at Salesforce.org. Jason now spends his time designing tooling to support open source team development on the Salesforce platform. This work led to the creation on release of two open source projects, CumulusCI and mrbelvedere.

  • Darley S.

    When I google map this address , I'm seeing houses. is this the right Address?

    November 29

    • Alex S.

      Hi Darley, yes, the address is correct, but for some reason the street view imagery is a little bit off. The meeting will be on the 5th floor of Parkview Tower, attached to the Valley Forge Convention Center/Casino, right off of N Gulph Road and First Ave in Valley Forge/King of Prussia. Please call me at[masked] if you have any trouble finding the location!

      November 29

    • Darley S.

      Thanks Alex

  • Judi S.

    Hi Mat, great question. I know it's super confusing so I can understand that someone thought the Nonprofit Success Pack Sprint was the same thing as NPSP Day. They're not. They're completely separate and different events, and the NPSP Day event is indeed happening in Philly the 2nd week of December. http://www.npspday.org/events/philadelphia

    NPSP Days are single day events, organized entirely by community members (although I'll be there - wouldn't miss it!). They're not about contributing to NPSP, they are aimed at new users/admins to learn about NPSP and its ecosystem and help each other.

    Sprints are 2 day events (that we at Salesforce.org manage and organize) and are focused on actual hands-on contribution to NPSP. I'll talk more about them and will be happy to answer any questions at the meeting.

    2 · November 4

    • Dean G.

      Judi thanks for clarifying. I want anyone interested in the NPSP to feel free to come to NPSP Day!! You will learn more about it, share your knowledge, and basically bask in the nonprofit glow of SFDC!!

      1 · November 10

  • Mat K.

    At the last meeting there was a conversation about a Nonprofit Success Pack sprint the second week of December. I have never attended one of these but am interested in contributing my time. I found this link:

    http://www.salesforce.org/help/contribute-nonprofit-success-pack/

    but does anyone have more details on the date and location of the Philly event?
