Nonprofit help with Salesforce?

Hello Twin Cities folks!

I'd like to learn more about Salesforce. Do you know anyone who offers Salesforce mentoring or training to nonprofit organizations in the Twin Cities?

Enjoy Creativity has qualified for the "free" nonprofit Salesforce license, but I have no idea where to start. It's kind of a big deal to set up correctly, and the flexibility and learning curve sounds analogous to Drupal.

Presentation Ideas for Upcoming Meet-ups

I wanted to volunteer to do a presentation on how to setup your Drupal 7 site for instances where content needs to be moderated/approved before it's published. I'm currently working on standardizing this at my current company and thought it would be something interesting to share with the group. So far I'm utilizing the Revisioning Module and Rules. I know there are other modules out there, but I'd like to present one option on how to accomplish this.

Hey everybody I'm trying to gauge interest in joining in an AirBnb for Drupalcon? I think Wylbur also has an AirBnb but I don't know if that one was for Drupalcon or not.

So far I've got 1 other person confirmed and 1 other person interested joining the AirBnb. Need to see if I can get 3 other people to join.

Otherwise I need to book a hotel room.

Overnight Website Challenge: calling all Drupal people

Last year was my first Overnight Website Challenge. I was skeptical, but I learned way more than I ever expected to. There's something special about learning by working with a team for a common goal. I got to experience how projects are run at the Nerdery by being on Chris' team, which helped discover new modules, new techniques, and overall improve how I run projects with Enjoy Creativity (and later Triplo).

That's why it's my pleasure to tell you about OWC this year. The Overnight Website Challenge is an event where teams of people like you build websites pro-bono for nonprofits from 9am on May 2nd until 9am on May 3rd. Joining a team would be a great experience for folks that want to join a crazy event and learn a lot about the process of making websites.

The sponsors provide food, drinks, desks, power, wifi during the entire 24 hour period. You just have to bring along your own essentials: laptop / desktop, monitor, keyboard, good luck charm, board games - whatever you need to survive the 24 hours or keep you going late at night. Not sure you can make it the whole night? There are even places to nap, quiet rooms, and even a place to get massage.

So far the Twin Cities has two teams focused on Drupal:
