Today marks the first official, stable release for CRM Core.

Many thanks to all the people who helped test and shared ideas to bring together a stable release, this would not have been possible without all the support and feedback from the community.

  • The repository was moved from trellon to github to facilitate community involvement.
  • We created petition list for the online petition feature.
  • Contact petitions /crm/contact/%/activity/petitions which shows the Contact petitions.
  • We created a new field which will store Tags and started Petitions Primer view.
  • A project lead reviewed the online petition feature and news feature.

Trellon ran its first two CRM Core sprints and we accomplished a lot. We really want CRM Core to be a project shared and owned by a community of people with aligned goals for a CRM framework. By hanging in the IRC channel #drupal-crmcore, we'll be able to share best practices and pitfalls to avoid.

What is CRM Core?

CRM Core is a set of modules for managing contact records within a Drupal site, providing support for contacts, relationships and activities. It provides basic CRM system components and a framework for extending these components to build a custom system that will allow an organization to effectively meet their needs with respect to contact, relationship, and activity tracking.

What Does it do?

I'll be headed out the the Denver Meetup on October 23rd to present on Project Management. The meetup regularly attracts 50 or more people - if you are interested in attending, it is helpful to sign up so the meetup's hosts know how much pizza and cold refreshments need to be provided.

CRM Core is a tool for managing contact information within a Drupal website. It was designed to act as a platform, where developers can add small, useful applications on top of the core components to handle specific use-cases. It was also designed to be highly interoperable with Drupal so that people without any specialized programming knowledge could work with it.

Berkeley + Early November = BADCamp.

I'm a big fan of camps - I have helped organize quite a few in Colorado. They help cement local communities. With the cross pollination of camp goers, they provide ways for those communities to interact with one another. Many of the camps have become conferences in their own right - with BADCamp being one of the largest.

After decompressing for a couple of weeks from Drupalcon Munich, some observations have filtered to the surface. This is my 10th Drupalcon. It seems to be hard to believe. I've seen changes to the demographics of the convention that I think are worth sharing.

It provides the basic tools organizations need to effectively track the relationships they maintain with people, along with a framework for extending that support to handle other use cases.

There have been plenty of articles about Drupal 7 and entities already. Entities are great. They provide a unified way to work with different data units in Drupal. Drupal 7 is all about entities. They are everywhere: nodes, users, taxonomy terms, vocabularies...

Let's take a closer look at how developers can create their own entities using the Entity API module, which is a great toolbox.

The Apachesolr module (7.x) allows us to build sites that use powerful search technology. Besides being blazingly fast, Apachesolr has another advantage: faceted search.

Faceted search allows our search results to be filtered by defined criteria like category, date, author, location, or anything else that can come out of a field. We call these criteria facets. With facets, you can narrow down your search more and more until you get to the desired results.

With each week that DrupalCon Denver is coming nearer, the excitement in the community grows. At Trellon, we're not immune to that excitement, and we're proud to be a Platinum sponsor of Drupalcon Denver. We're looking forward to seeing members of the Drupal community there, both old friends and new. We're excited about the opportunity that Drupalcons give us not only to learn more about the direction of Drupal, but to help shape it. We're eager to learn what new and exciting things people around the world have been doing with Drupal.

Last week I attended LatinoWare 2011 in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, which also hosted, among a number of events, DrupalCamp Foz. There hasn't been a Drupalcamp in Brazil for some time already, so this was a really important event for the Drupal community in Brazil. The community is growing in Brazil and other Latin America countries. At the Drupalcamp, we had representatives from Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, and Mexico. We also had the presence of our dear Drupal creator, Dries Buytaert.

CTools is a powerful toolbox for Drupal developers, but there are many features of this huge module that aren't well known or used. I would like to share some of my experience with using one of those lesser-known features: CTools Access Rulesets.

In this article you'll learn how to utilize the nice CTools Access Rulesets GUI in combination with some custom code to limit file downloads based on certain criteria. This promotes generic code and separates the access logic out to a place where it is customizable by a site administrator.
