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?
Building a feature using CRM Core profile is easy. In this demo we will demonstrate the step-by-step instruction on how to do it. Please note this is a follow up and more in-depth guide to http://www.trellon.com/content/blog/building-crm-core-feature.

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.
