Philip and I are doing our last steps for the plone training. Also, we ask each other what else we could forget, did you miss any of these?

We are in the last steps for our two-day Training "Mastering Plone". As far as I can tell we'd still welcome more people. We just sent our a mail to the participants about how to prepare a virtual machine with vagrant for the conference. It installs Plone's unified installer in a ubuntu 12.4-box with puppet using the systems python 2.7. Hopefully everyone should have the same Plone running on their laptops even before the training starts on Monday morning.

Apart from that, don't forget:

  1. Internet in Hotels can be slow. It might be better to get a local card than to disable roaming on your phone. Here is a list of dutch sim card providers with data plans: http://prepaidwithdata.wikia.com/wiki/The_Netherlands
  2. Don't trust WiFi! From what I have heard, it has happened in the past that Wifi routers have been stolen during the conference, hacked for data sniffing and reinserted into the conference LAN, probably with key loggers. I am pretty sure you access your customers plone sites via https only (wink, wink!), but what about your phone apps, you know they won't transmit your password in clear text? Don't take any risks, use a VPN! http://vpnreviews.com/
    I have had bad experiences with HideMyAss btw, as soon as I was in brazil, they thought my VPN account was used for fraud and asked for some details I didn't have with me, to not cancel my account. Apparently they want you to use HMA from home only.
  3. Sleep as much as you can before you go. You won't get any sleep during the conference.

See you in Arnhem!
