When and Where

Phillips Hall Room 328 is centrally located on campus and is a state of the art high technology classroom. There are wired 100Mb Ethernet connections and grounded AC power outlets at every seat. Two video projection screens monitor two computers at the front of the room.

Boot Camp consisted of three parts:

How To Register

PBC2 was sold out!

Early bird registrations completed by February 25, 2006 were only $250 per seat lunches included.

Late registrations which were completed by February 28, 2006 were $300 per seat lunches included.

Plone Boot Camp 2 was made possible by the kind sponsorship of the Carolina Cardiovascular Biology Center, a multidisciplinary, multidepartmental facility which serves as a focal point for interactions among basic, translational, and clinical scientists studying all aspects of cardiovascular disease. Areas of specific interest include atherosclerosis and other vascular diseases, angiogenesis and cardiovascular development, cardiovascular physiology, and diseases of hemostasis.

Who Is Your Instructor

Once again, Plone Boot Camp 2 was taught by the incomparable Joel Burton, Chair of the Plone Foundation. Joel is the best technical instructor you will ever see and hear. Just ask last year's Plone Boot Camp 1 participants.
