I figured some indymedia people would like to know about this event:
Jazkarta to host Plone bootcamp in Boston
Jazkarta is pleased to announce the Plone Bootcamp to be held on August 27th and 28th at Tech
Superpowers on Newbury Street in Boston. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to learn all you ever
wanted to know about Plone!
What you will learn
Day 1 will be a basic introduction to Plone, and is suitable for both non-technical and technical
Day 2 will focus on more advanced Plone topics, and is geared towards developers or those who have
a more technical bent.
What can you expect to learn from Day 1: you will get a comprehensive overview of Plone's features
and how your organization can use Plone to take your website to the next level. We will look at
some of the 3rd party products for Plone such as discussion forums, RSS feeds, Rich text editor,
chat, e-commerce, newsletters, full-text searching, member management, online donations, and
more! You will get hands-on experience using Plone and discover how easy it is for your staff to
add and manage content on a Plone-based website.
Participants in Day 2 will set up a Plone site from scratch, learn how to administer the Plone
site and configure it for your needs, customize the skin to change the look-n-feel of the site
using CSS, install 3rd party products and develop new products which extend Plone's functionality.
At the end of the session, you will have a fully functioning website from which to continue your
development. We will discuss the issues of setting up and maintaining a Plone site, such as
hosting, security, backups, and upgrading to newer versions of Plone.
There will be ample time for questions and specific issues that you would like to cover.
