Mastering Plone

Next Training: 17. - 18. October 2016 in Boston

Take the peak

Plone is a powerful, flexible Content Management Solution that is easy to use and extend. Plone has a well-tested code-base, a multitude of amazing features, the best security-track in the business and a bright future ahead. Plone is written in Python, a beautiful and extremely popular programming language.

Although Plone is well documented it is a challenge to learn programming with Plone. With the power of Plone comes undeniable complexity. Various technologies have to be mastered to effectively create intranets, websites and webapplications.
The Mastering Plone Training is your sherpa, get to the peak and enjoy the view over what you can achieve.

Facts & Figures

We have 12 years of Plone experience, bundled in this training. We use Plone every day and know it very well. We usually give trainings with two trainers. This means there is always someone there to help you individually if you get stuck.

The training material is open sourced and part of the Plone Core Repository. We are working on it since 2009 and held numerous Plone Tranings since then, among them at the international Plone Conferences in Arheim 2012, Brasilia 2013, Bristol 2014 and Bucarest 2015.
