I've just written the following press release for Plone Conf (heavily
influenced by the PyCon NZ one, possibly written by Tim Knapp ;) ). If any of
you are able to put this out to any news channels you know of, or to translate
it and put it out to localised media that would be great!
Plone Conference 2010 Talks Announced
September 27th, 2010
Over 400 attendees are set to meet at the 8th annual Plone Conference for a
week-long programme of training, talks and developer sprints from the 25th to
31st October at the Thistle Grand Hotel in Bristol, UK.
Plone Conference 2010 registrations are open.
Plone, an Open Source Content Management System used throughout the world has a
massive following and Plone events are held around the globe. The largest of
these is the annual Plone Conference and this year will be held in the UK.
Plone is used for developing websites, intranet and portals for corporations,
NGOs and the public sector.
Organised by Netsight Internet Solutions, it promises to bring together
developers, designers, end users and business people. This year an additional
event is being planned as a one-day mini-conference on the 26th October called
"Plone in Business" which will be aimed specifically at analysts, advisors,
evaluators and information professionals looking to find out more about Plone
and see a showcase of successful Plone projects from across the sectors. It
will also see the launch of the JBoye Plone Community of Practice.
The main part of the conference, from the 27th - 29th October, has over 50
scheduled talks from speakers from 19 countries and includes an 'unconference'
day in which talks will be proposed by the attendees.
Plone Conference 2010 scheduled talks include:
* Easier and faster Plone theming with Deliverance
* Design and Development with Dexterity
* Enterprise Search in Plone with Solr
* Boosting productivity with "Plone-driven Plone development"
* Brasil.gov.br: Building a digital nation with Plone
Alan Runyan, co-founder of Plone and president of Enfold Systems along with
Alex Limi, fellow co-founder of Plone and now Firefox User Experience Lead at
Mozilla will be delivering a keynote. There will also be a guest keynote by
Richard Noble, OBE, project director of the Bloodhound SSC project attempting
be build a car to pass the 1,000mph land speed mark.
The conference falls at a great time, with the recent release of Plone 4, a
product that raises the bar in the Content Management System market with a
faster, more user-friendly and more refined version of the product.
So far, registrations for the conference have come from over 30 countries
around the world. To find out more about the conference and to register, visit
