2011 Plone Conference Has Sold 100 Tickets

The organisers of the 2011 Plone Conference are pleased that 100 of the 400 available conference tickets have been sold.

These ticket sales represent a major milestone for the conference and show that there is excitement in the community surrounding the event. Sales are ahead of schedule and predicted to sell out.

The majority of tickets sold are at the “Early Bird” price, although there are few remaining in this tier. The remaining tickets are available regular full-priced tickets, with the exception of tickets specially priced for speakers and students. You can register for the conference here before the "Early Bird" price expires on August 1st.

The annual Plone Conference is an opportunity for the world-wide Plone community to come together, build connections, and learn about the current state and future direction of Plone.  It also serves as the venue for the annual election of the Plone Foundation Board of Directors.  The San Francisco-based organizers are honored to have been chosen by the Plone Foundation to host the Conference in this wonderful city.

Plone is a powerful, flexible Open Source Content Management Solution that is easy to install, use and extend. It lets non-technical people create and maintain information for a public website or an intranet using only a web browser.  Plone leverages the power of the Zope application server and the flexibility and popularity of the Python programming language to deliver an enterprise-class, extensible, and secure content management system for individuals and organizations of all sizes.

The Plone Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in May 2004 to serve as a supporting organization for Plone and its community. It provides support for the development and marketing, and is modeled after similar ventures such as the Apache Software Foundation. It is the legal owner of the Plone codebase, trademarks, and domain names. Its goal is to ensure that Plone remains the premier open source content management system and broaden its acceptance and visibility.
