Plone Conference 2011 Nearly Here!
With just over two weeks to go, the annual Plone Conference is nearly upon us. It is not too late to buy your ticket and attend if you have not done so already. At US$350 it represents amazing value for a conference.
This year the conference is being held in San Francisco on the 3rd-6th November, and even counting airfare and hotel, you will not find a better, more cost-effective way to brush up on your Plone skills, meet other Plone developers and users, and see what the rest of the community is up to.
I know that in the current economic climate, training and conference budget is hard to come by, especially if you have to tell your boss that you have the hardship of a stay in glorious San Francisco for it. But if you consider that you will have the choice of 118 different talks, plus the opportunity to get structured training at the training workshops before the conference with a choice of five great to-day courses ranging on topics from theming to content type creation; it really is a no-brainer.
If you have attended a Plone Conference beforeyou will know of the energy and intensity of the event, if you've never attended one, then please do come along. The Plone community is one of the most welcoming developer communities you will ever meet, and you will get a chance to meet people from all industries in public, private. and NGO sectors. Come and hear tals such as 'Beginner mistakes, Expert Failures' by Alan Runyan on of the Plone co-founders; or 'Dexterity in the Wild: Technical case study of a complex Dexterity-based integration' by David Glick, one of the core developers.
If you want to get a flavour of the talks, then take a look at the videos of the talks from last year's conference.
I look forward to seeing you there!
