The 2006 New OrleansPlone Symposium will be this March 8-10, 2006 at the Astor
Crowne Plaza in the famous New Orleans French Quarter. The goal of this year’s
gathering is to share ideas on relevant topics through discussions around the
pragmatic usage of Plone and real-world experiences of organizations like Disney
and fundable.org. While technology is always the core focus of open source
technology events, this year's symposium will also addresses specific business
topics including law, non-profits, venture capital and business models.
“The New Orleans Symposium aims at being the top open source content management
conference in North America for 2006”, Says Alan Runyan, President of Enfold
Systems. The event will host two concurrent sessions – one track focusing on
business, and the other on technology. The first day consists of 3 hour
tutorials on topics from Plone best practices to implementations at non-profits.
The next two days utilize 45 minute talks ranging from Enterprise Search
strategies to Content Delivery options.
Andrei Codrescu, the noted writer and commentator, will close the symposium.
Known for his unique insights into society and human nature, his thoughts on the
open source community and its future promises to be both thought provoking and
entertaining. Like a great cup of gumbo, the rich mix of applied business and
technology topics should make this year’s Plone Symposium a memorable event.
2006 marks the fourth year of active deployment for the Plone Open Source
community. To encourage and cultivate the community spirit, daily post-event
socializing is scheduled for the world-renown New Orleans Vieux Carre (French
Quarter). In fact, over 90% of last year’s attendees indicated they would return
and encourage others to come as well.
