# Been a week sick, so catching up on emails, discussions and all the 
work. Going to ask some stupid questions too. #

Is there a full day track reserved for tutorials from the timetable at 
the moment on some day - and was there allready an agreement of the 
format of tutorials ( 30 minute, 2 hour? ,-)?

If all the tutorials share the same one track - how will it be shared 
between different categories. Any thoughts on that yet?

I'm asking because from my Zopish and Plonish point of view there might 
be interest to have quick tips and tricks sessions about CMF, Plone, 
Silva etc., in the same way as lightning talks - except that the 
presentations really only take that 10 - 15 minutes. Ofcourse some 
subjects do require a longer time for tutorial, but then again there are 
  a lot of things that could be explained in short periods of time.

These tips&tricks sessions could make an impact even for quite newbie 
users in Zope world - and that sense this could be also a marketing 
benefit for the EuroPython. People who are starting to use Zope / Plone 
at their organisations could get funding to come and get even more info 
that they wanted. That is what happened to me, when I came to Europython 
2002. Before Europython I thought Python as a necessary evil for Zope - 
and then I started to care more also for Python itself.

BTW. There are no benefits in conference fee for people who do lightning
