World Plone Day is a free event open to anyone interested in the benefits of a Web-based Content Management System (CMS). Coming off the heels of the annual International Plone Conference in Washington D.C., The Boston Plone User Group will host seminars, talks, and demos of Plone in action. Speakers include Plone contributors and developers Nate Aune, Sally Kleinfeldt, and Aaron VanDerlip of Jazkarta, Michael Trachtman of Vercadia Systems, Sid Koul of New England Wildflower Society, and Tatsu Ikeda of The Tatsu Co. It will be held at The Lewis Room - Cambridge Public Library, Central Sq. Branch, 45 Pearl Street, Cambridge MA 02139 (617) 349-4010. Following the presentations, we invite the community to our après-evening social at Betahouse, two blocks away at 13 Magazine St. #2 Cambridge MA 02139.
Whether you or your business, non-profit, school, university, government agency, or NGO uses an internet or intranet CMS today or not, Plone offers unparalleled ease-of-use and high-level sophistication at the same time for a multitude of applications. We invite members of the media to cover this free educational and community-oriented event. Non-technical people and techies alike are welcome!
