Camp 5 is an advanced Zope 3 training designed to keep Zope and Plone product developers in step as we migrate to Zope 3.

Zope 3 APIs are available in Plone today by using a special bridge product included with Plone called Five. Five allows Zope 3 application development in Plone while still using the Zope 2 application server. Five is already in use in the current and previous Plone releases. Zope 3 products you develop for Plone today using Five will still work with all future versions of Plone. You are future-proof with Camp 5!


Camp 5 is the very best Zope 3 and Five training available and targeted at Zope 2, CMF, and Plone developers. Camp 5 insures your Zope, CMF, and Plone development skills stay current. Camp 5 has been tested to rave reviews from audiences in Europe and is now available for the first time in North America. Your instructor, Philipp von Weitershausen, wrote the hardcover Zope 3 book Web Component Development with Zope 3 published by Springer and now in its second edition (included with your Camp 5 registration) including five all new chapters and five completely revised chapters. Philipp also runs the acclaimed World Cookery website which aggregates the finest in Zope 3 tutorials and documentation.

Camp 5 is followed immediately by the optional BBQ Sprint at the same location where you get to finely hone your new Zope 3 skills by developing Plone 3 groupware, geospatial, and release testing products. Participants in Camp 5 may attend the BBQ Sprint for free alongside a number of super-star sponsored and invited Plone 3 developers. You will be integrated into the international community of Plone 3 product developers and get a jump start on future Plone releases. The BBQ Sprint also includes an authentic Eastern North Carolina BBQ roast and a Chapel Hill indie rock festival. Camp 5 participants are not required to stay for the BBQ Sprint. But the opportunity is golden.

Camp 5 takes place in a state of the art high technology classroom. There are wired 100Mb Ethernet connections and grounded AC power outlets at every seat. A video projection screen monitors the presentation computer at the front of the room. The seating is conference style on terraced risers all facing the instructor. A wireless microphone tracks the instructor throughout the room.
