The conference is November 3-6 and the full schedule of talks is at

400 tickets and will be followed by a 2.5 day sprint on Pyramid and
Plone. Tickets are $350/person - a very modest price for being in

questions feel free to ping me directly!
Getting off the Ground with Plone — Cris Ewing
So you've heard about Plone, this smart, secure and powerful content
management system and you'd like to get started. Where to begin?
This training course is for you.You'll learn how to install Plone,
how to create your first website and get started adding content, how
to get quick, simple victories for your new project, and how to
deploy your site when you're ready to go live.
Pyramid for Humans — Paul Everitt
Pyramid has emerged as a fast, modern, lightweight web framework for
the Pylons and Zope communities. When you just need a web app, and
not a full CMS, Pyramid lets you retain many of the same Plone
technologies. This hands-on tutorial covers a little about a lot:
practical introductions to the most common facilities. Fun,
fast-paced, and most certainly not aimed at experts.
Theming Plone 4 — Chrissy Wainwright
This training session includes front-end design of a Plone 4.0 site
from start to finish using two methods: Traditional Plone theming,
and using plone.app.theming. The training will be a hands-on,
introductory walk-through of the process, using a pre-created sample
design. Attendees will need their computers and will be expected to
follow along on their own local instances.
Plone Development Environment and Deployment Masterclass — Martin
Learn to develop and deploy like a Plone pro! On the first day, you
will learn how to set up a powerful and productive development
environment, employing the tools the professionals use to debug,
document and release manage their code. The second day will focus on
caching, performance optimisation, deployment configuration and
application lifecycle management.
Technologies covered will include: Buildout; mr.developer; the
Python debugger; plone.reload; Sphinx; PyPI-style distribution
management; plone.app.caching; HAProxy; Varnish; and nginx.
Creating Custom Content Types with Dexterity — Steve McMahon
With Plone 4, the Dexterity content-type-development framework has
become a practical and desirable alternative to the Archetypes
framework Plone has featured in previous versions. This course will
show how it's possible to use Dexterity now to build reliable and
maintainable new content types for Plone 4+.
