Why i am interested
I'm interested to work to promote the use of Plone and contribute with community foundation, in particular I'm focused on Spanish-speaker market, although i'm interested to contribute on other places too. I usually travel to Free Software conventions promoting plone, organizing mini courses, just to promote Plone and its communities.
