I am running for a speaker seat in Plone Conference 2010. As a strategy to gain this glamored position I have submitted several topics which might interest you.
- Backpacking with Plone: how our team has redefined North Lapland travel industry with Plone sites. I promise to bring a genuine Lapland snowball with me and toss it to the first person asking a question.
- Mad about mobile: How to turn your Plone web site to a mobile site in 15 minutes (* the actual time varies on the status of PyPi and buildouting speed). If you can’t afford iPhone 4 yet, I promise the site will be 100% functional on a 40$ budget phones also.
- Culture of good documentation: Plone is hated because newcomers cannot grasp how to customize it. I belive this is an attitude problem, not with the newcomers, but with module authors. This manual is now 86k words. If we can make it to go up to 100k words in the conference I’ll buy a beer everyone who participates the effort.
- The world outside Plone: Why there exist 13 600 000 Joomla! sites, but 20 000 Plone sites? Why single Joomla! freelancer-entrepreneur can make 250k€ a year alone? How we could make Plone more succesfully by learning what others are doing? Our team has some cross-system experience and we want to give you the best bits what others are doing right (and Plone might be doing wrong).
Ps. If I am too boring I promise I will do only PHP/Joomla! jobs in the future, so vote me now or I will forever hold my peace :<
