Hey Baypiggies -

The 2011 Plone conference is in San Francisco this November and comes 
complete with introductory formal training for both Plone and Pyramid. 
If you have been curious about either python based web framework, I 
highly encourage you to check out the trainings and/or the conference. 
Descriptions for the trainings are below and will be held November 1st 
and 2nd. For more information or to register for any training, please go 
to http://ploneconf.org/event/training.

The conference itself will have 3.5 days of talks on Plone, Pyramid, and 
related technologies such as Git, WSGI, Javascript, and more. The 
conference is November 3-6 and the full schedule of talks is at 
http://2011ploneconference.sched.org/. The conference is limited to 400 
tickets and will be followed by a 2.5 day sprint on Pyramid and Plone. 
Tickets are $350/person - a very modest price for being in downtown San 
Francisco. All the details are at http://ploneconf.org.

This is all coordinated by local baypiggies so if you have any questions 
feel free to ping me directly!

*Getting off the Ground with Plone --- Cris Ewing*
So you've heard about Plone, this smart, secure and powerful content 
management system and you'd like to get started. Where to begin? This 
training course is for you.You'll learn how to install Plone, how to 
create your first website and get started adding content, how to get 
quick, simple victories for your new project, and how to deploy your 
site when you're ready to go live.

*Pyramid for Humans --- Paul Everitt*
Pyramid has emerged as a fast, modern, lightweight web framework for the 
Pylons and Zope communities.  When you just need a web app, and not a 
full CMS, Pyramid lets you retain many of the same Plone technologies.  
This hands-on tutorial covers a little about a lot: practical 
introductions to the most common facilities.  Fun, fast-paced, and most 
certainly not aimed at experts.
Theming Plone 4 --- Chrissy Wainwright*
This training session includes front-end design of a Plone 4.0 site from 
start to finish using two methods: Traditional Plone theming, and using 
plone.app.theming. The training will be a hands-on, introductory 
walk-through of the process, using a pre-created sample design. 
Attendees will need their computers and will be expected to follow along 
on their own local instances.

*Plone Development Environment and Deployment Masterclass --- Martin Aspeli*
Learn to develop and deploy like a Plone pro! On the first day, you will 
learn how to set up a powerful and productive development environment, 
employing the tools the professionals use to debug, document and release 
manage their code. The second day will focus on caching, performance 
optimisation, deployment configuration and application lifecycle management.
Technologies covered will include: Buildout; mr.developer; the Python 
debugger; plone.reload; Sphinx; PyPI-style distribution management; 
plone.app.caching; HAProxy; Varnish; and nginx.

*Creating Custom Content Types with Dexterity --- Steve McMahon*
With Plone 4, the Dexterity content-type-development framework has 
become a practical and desirable alternative to the Archetypes framework 
Plone has featured in previous versions. This course will show how it's 
possible to use Dexterity now to build reliable and maintainable new 
content types for Plone 4+.
