North American Plone Symposium 2006

One week after Mardi Gras — Downtown New Orleans — Plone Symposium 2006

New Orleans Plone Symposium 2006, New Orleans, LA. The New Orleans Plone Symposium is a Plone mini-conference. It will be limited to 200 persons. The goal is to summarize the development and deployment experience form the veterans and pass those on to conference attendees. Save hundreds or hours of experimentation — learn the best practices from the pros. In the afternoons, there will be scheduled social events. The conference location is at the foot of the famous Bourbon Street. It will be held 1 week after Mardi Gras; so it's a perfect time to take a vacation and wrap it together with 3 days of Plone knowledge.

The Plone Founders — Alexander Limi and Alan Runyan

Announcing the world-class keynote speaker, Andrei Codrescu! In addition, the presentation schedules are nearing completion.

We have booked Andrei Codrescu for a keynote. His lecture should be quite stimulating and will focus on bridging the gap of development, community, and business. Mr. Codrescu is excited the symposium is happening in New Orleans — so fast after Hurricane Katrina. If you listen to National Public Radio, you've heard his Romanian accent so many times.
