The quest for performance improvements - 6th sprint

五, 02/24/2017 - 21:59

In this blog I want to explain the round up we have done around the refactoring of the acl_contact_cache. In the previous sprints we discovered that a lot of the performance was slowed down by the way the acl_contact_cache was used (or rather not used at all). See also the previous blog post:

Free Resource today only: "Using CiviCRM" is Packt Publishing's free book of the day

五, 02/17/2017 - 23:20

Just a heads up for the community that "Using CiviCRM" by Joe Murray and Brian Shaughnessy is Packt Publishing's free book of the day. See

This book is a good overview of the system despite being written for a much older version of CiviCRM. In particular the early chapter on planning your CRM implementation is still applicable and valuable information that is often overlooked.

Calling all contributors

三, 02/15/2017 - 03:21

If you contribute to CiviCRM, we want to know about it. Now, you might ask "don't you already know given that contributions improve the code, coordinate events, extend the system, etc.?" Well, yes, that is true, but coordinating all of that information in such a way that we, as a small Core Team, can recognize it effectively is no small task.

Email Authentication – SPF, DKIM, DMARC

五, 01/27/2017 - 20:30

When email was first designed, security was not considered important and up until fairly recently it was still possible to send an email from any address and get away with it.

The quest for performance improvements - 5th sprint

四, 01/26/2017 - 22:47

The last two days we spent another sprint at socialist party to improve performance.  And again we used a guy with database knowledge to analyze our queries. We have optimized a few things so far one of the major areas to improve next was the ACL part of queries. That is the part of the query to decide which contacts you are allowed to see. So at the socialist party they have local chapter administrator who are only allowed to see the active members in their local area.

Enterprise Hosting for CiviCRM

四, 01/19/2017 - 20:58

Way back when, in the early days of CiviCRM, there were two CMS’s supported, Drupal and Joomla, and CiviCRM’s codebase was complicated, but ran reasonably well. After a few years, the code was greatly improved but also significantly expanded to include a tremendous amount of additional functionality, and thus CiviCRM became a serious server resource hog. Finding hosting that could run it at all was sometimes a challenge and finding a host that could run it well was difficult.

Developer Documentation: Goodbye Wiki. Hello MkDocs!

五, 01/13/2017 - 09:16

TL;DR: A migration project is underway to bring wiki content into the Developer Guide.

The wiki is kind of like that drawer in your kitchen where you put things that seem useful but don't really have "a place". And it works okay, especially when its your kitchen, because you have a decent idea of what you've chucked in there over the years.
