About the Plone Conference Like our first conference in New Orleans, this year's conference will focus primarily on the people that make Plone what it is—the developers and contributors to the finished product. In addition to this focus, we will also be adding material to benefit those in business and politics who have adopted Plone within their organizations. As Plone is built on top of the Zope server infrastructure, our success has had the side-effect of attracting tens of thousands of users to the Zope Application Server. For this reason, will will include sessions on not just Plone, but also its supporting technologies, Zope and Python. The three-day conference in Vienna, Austria will begin on September 20th and run until September 22nd. There will be two different tracks - a Tutorial Track for those who would like to learn their first bit about Plone or advance their skills, as well as a Talks Track for those who would rather hear some history, use-cases, and demonstrations of what Plone can do. Concluding the 2004 Plone Conference on Wednesday night will be a party held at the discothek which will undoubtedly be something not to miss.
