Today is World Plone Day and together with the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, we are organizing a half-day event with 3 talks, a round of lightning talks, Q&A session, local food and prizes to give away!
It’s going to be a good time, and we’re excited that so many people from the local Boston area have signed up to be a part of it. As of this morning, we have 62 registrants, and there will likely be some last minute registrations.
Here is the schedule for the day:
2:15 – 2:30: Sign-in and welcoming
3:30 – 4:00: Theming websites effortlessly
: How Deliverance saves us countless hours in the theming process by Aaron VanDerlip and Nate Aune from Jazkarta
4:00 – 4:30: Catalyzing change through collaborative learning
: Harnessing Plone as a platform for collaborative research and reflective learning at Columbia Law School, both within and beyond the classroom by Kyle Homstead from Chronicle Technologies
4:30 – 5:00: Lightning talks and Q&A
. This is an opportunity to give a short 5 min talk about how you are using Plone, or a cool tool that you’ve found and want to share. Please prepare your talk in advance, and sign up at the door. Projector will be provided. For example, there will be a lightning talk about the next major release of Plone 4 (see slides here
), and there will be some time to ask questions to a panel of experts.
5:30 – 7:30: Drinks and optional dinner at nearby watering hole
If there are no technical hiccups, we plan to stream the entire event on uStream.tv. The link to tune in is:
