Short Description: 
Using the new API and native presentation tools to use CiviCRM data in any application
Session Length: 
90 Minutes
Not CMS-specific

We all know the power and utility that CiviCRM can bring to any organization, but are also painfully aware of its rough spots. By providing a full coverage API that is the single source of access to the data store, CiviCRM can be unleashed to be directly connected to native CRM tools, and be accessed by non-CRM tools alike. Instead of relying on the UI capabilities of Civi alone, the power to access, create, and manage CiviCRM data can be delegated to best in class tools across any platform, or distilled easily into any data format. This session would examine 

  • Holes in APIv3 that would need to be fixed or may be improved in APIv4
  • Existing approaches in Drupal, Joomla, and Wordpress for managing data
  • Options for extending data access to shell scripts, other application environments, and varying data formats
