What and When?

Plone Boot Camp - Customizing Plone, July 20-24, 2009: Learn the essentials you need to build your Plone site and deploy it. This course is the most popular in the Plone world--for a good reason: it teaches you practical skills in a friendly, hands-on format. Updated for Plone 3.1 and 3.2, while still offering the core skills required for all versions of Plone.

This bootcamp is offered to the general public, and is aimed at:

  • people with HTML or web design experience
  • people with some or no Python experience
  • people with some or no Zope/Plone experience
This is a hands-on, interactive class. You will need a laptop running Plone (we'll provide setup instructions for you).

It covers using Plone, customizing, and deploying Plone sites.

Advanced Plone Boot Camp - Plone 3 Techniques, July 27-30, 2009: Interested in building a site using the best practices of Plone 3? Want to advance your skills in scripting and developing for Plone? This course covers the new technologies in Plone 3.1 and 3.2 intended for site integrators and developers: our new portlet infrastructure, viewlets, versioning, and a friendly introduction to Zope 3 component architecture. Now, updated for Plone 3.2 and 3.3 betas!

Plone 3 introduces many new features to Plone, including:

  • inline editing
  • versioning and staging
  • through-the-web locking to prevent concurrent editing
  • user-selectable portlets and a new portlet system
  • "viewlets" -- allowing elegant page composition without customizing HTML
This course is intended for people who have experience with the basics of Plone site development and HTML/CSS. It will cover what you need to know to take advantage of these new technologies in Plone 3.
