Cividesk is one of the leading CiviCRM service providers. Giving Back is a cornerstone of our company culture, and we proudly support many charitable and humanitarian organizations with pro-bono or reduced-cost services. While our Giving back program is usually full, we still have a few Drupal openings this summer and would therefore be glad to support nonprofits that need Drupal work with pro-bono services.
Criteria for being part of the program are simple: being a primarely volunteer-run non-profit organization providing free and secular services to the underprivileged (every word is important!).
If your organization fits these criteria, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with your wishes and we might make turn them into reality!
Drupal 8 is likely to be released around September. Fuzion have been driving the initiative to have CiviCRM ready to roll when Drupal 8 is released. We have CIviCRM currently working on latest beta, and old friends like Views are working fine. But there is still lots to do to get Rules, Entities and Webform working. We expect there to be a MIH (make it happen) campaign launched soon, but we have already had some generous sponsors for our work to help get us this far.
You can give it a try out at http://civid8.fudev.co.nz/ and you can help progress this work by chipping in here http://www.fuzion.co.nz/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=4, or you can request that we set you up your own test suite.
