Speaker(s):

Nicolas Ganivet
Jon Goldberg

CiviCRM's built in import functionality can be used with smaller datasets or a limited number of record updates. Need to pre-load a database with tens of thousands of records? This workshop will demonstrate an approach of preparing, loading, and validating large datasets - tens or hundreds of thousands of records.

We'll review options of using Kettle, direct SQL queries, CiviCRM's built in php code bypassing the GUI, and more.
