Now that I've made a contribution towards the sustainability of this platform, it feels right to post.
Active in #coops since the 80s, I'm into the bit where #coops and #digital come together, i.e. #platformcoop
My current worker co-op is http://mc3.coop, while I also spend time doing things through http://networks.coop and most recently helping create https://platform6.coop
I'm also working to build a #solidarityeconomy network where I live.
@Graham_Mitchell glad to have you on board, welcome!
@Antanicus Thanks. nice to be here 🙂
@Graham_Mitchell does your worker co-op have any examples of your work? Particularly on the CiviCRM / Drupal implementation? :) Might have a client for you.
Here's a few: https://inca.coop (Civi handles membership, email marketing, events and contacts). A straight ahead implementation. More complex (but all behind the login so nothing much to see) are https://hcvnetwork/als (where there is a full blown case mgmt system with membership mgmt and lots of additional Drupal integration; https://clients.rocbf.co.uk - an extensive loan application and assessment system that sits behind their front end WP site at https://rocbf.co.uk.
@Graham_Mitchell very cool.
Have you done e-commerce implementations before? And do you do the handles everything from design, front and back-end - or do you sub-contractor parts out?
@samtoland Hi Sam. I've done a few low key ecommerce-ish sites (e.g. a system selling places on training courses), but not done an online store using something like Drupal Commerce yet. In terms of UI/UX design, I can do this but it's not my strength so I generally work with a contractor/partner. The last project I did, we worked with a worker co-op from Greece which is a very strong Drupal shop.
My approach is to avoid custom code unless it is truly necessary. It is costly to both create and maintain.
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
