Plone Konferenz Munich 2012
Speaking of events, I've been invited over to Munich next week to deliver one of the keynote talks at the Plone Konferenz that is being hosted there. There are 34 talks over three days. Most of the talks will be in German, but a few will be in English.
The keynote speakers are:
- Prof. Udo Helmbrecht - Head of the EU Agency ENISA in IT security
- Elizabeth Leddy - Plone Framework team - San Francisco, USA
- Myself, Matt Hamilton - President of the Plone Foundation
This is looking like it is going to be a fantastic event, and it is great to see local-language events such as these happening in the Plone community as it shows just how much reach we have. In fact... that is part of what I will be talking about in my keynote "...It's Like Buying a Relationship":
"Software is developed and sold in many different ways. We will be looking at the relationships between the various parties and looking at what makes Plone CMS quite unique in the world. We will then take a look at Plone across the globe and see how the localization of Plone goes beyond just the software itself to the community as a whole."
Alas, I am only going to be able to make a very brief visit and won't be able to stay for the whole event, but will be there from Thursday lunchtime until about Friday lunchtime. I will however make the party on Thursday evening ;)
I will also be giving a case-study talk on Friday morning of the ongoing work we have been doing on a Plone-based intranet for Belron® the parent company of Carglass® in Germany (and Autoglass® in the UK).
See you there!
