Munich Plone 5 Sprint and Party

Come to our sprint September 16 through September 20, 2015 in Munich, Germany. Celebrate the Plone 5 release with a special party on September 16.

The Sprint

The sprint will focus on documenting and improving the different approaches used to implement designs for Plone 5.

We will work on beginner-to-professional level documentation covering...

  • customizing the new Plone 5-theme “barceloneta”
  • applying ready-made themes for Plone using Diazo
  • managing and customizing templates and resources 
  • using the new layout solution

There will be about 20 people and many experienced developers who would love to help beginners get started. You can also add your own topics to the sprint by joining the sprint and adding your topics to the coactive-page for the sprint.
