  • Mobile Phone Check-in

    Last year I told you about our problem of trying to check-in 1750+ kids (http://codersforchrist.com/cs/blogs/nick/archive/2011/07/25/VBS-Check_2D00_in-Process-Improvement.aspx) at roughly the same time to avoid the long line that growing as our Vacation Bible School program grows each year.  I hinted that the solution might be to ...

  • Remote, Mobile, 3G, Check-in

    When we launched our Queen Creek campus at the Queen Creek High School, we decided not to rely on the local network there.  Having learned our network reliability lessons when we ran a test church at Campo Verde High School the year before, we instead decided to put some trust into the 3G cellular network. So far it's been pretty ...

  • 101010 A Developers Conference: RefreshCache

    Last year we decided to take a little more ownership of our destiny so we created "RefreshCache," the free two day event for church developer teams that use the Arena ChMS platform.  We're doing it again, but this year we're breaking the ice with pre-event social and hack-night on the evening of 10/10/10.  (We did not ...

  • The Break Up: the Branching of CCV and Arena

    Now that it's been announced to the Arena community developers I can discuss the news: CCV has decided to branch away from the Arena core code base. It's difficult for me to talk too much about this situation, since I'm pretty close with Jon and David, and I've got friends over at the Arena HQ in Tennessee.  I've also ...

  • Elegance vs Practicality

    I yearn for and typically choose only elegant solutions, but in times of desperation it's not beyond me to use a hack to accomplish something.  I'm not proud of it, but I do see it as sign of my practical side.  I also don't enjoy javascript, but I don't know where I'd be without it in my toolbox. A ...

  • New Arena Milestones

    It's been a busy past couple of months.  Besides the typical vacation/holiday time spent on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's, we also did a few other things before the year ended.  We switched our small group ministry off GroupFinder and onto Arena managed Small Groups.  Thanks go to Jeff Gibson and his ...

  • Here Are Some of Our Questions

    Lately I've been getting lots of questions about my experience with Arena.  The last set of questions were particularly well thought out so I got permission from the good people (Zana and Win) at Christ Chapel Bible Church to share their questions and my responses with anyone who is interested.  I guess this post will only be of ...

  • The Arena Podcast Module

    At last weeks Arena Developer Roundtable, I gave a live demo and announced the impending beta release of the Podcast Module I’ve been working on off-and-on** over the summer. As of today this new Podcast Module is available to other Arena Developers on the Community site.  At CCCEV, we'll be starting to use this instead of an old ...
