Boston World Plone Day

The Boston Plone User Group is organizing 2009 Boston World Plone Day, and all are invited to attend. It will be held in the Forum Room at Harvard University's Lamont Library, at the corner of Mass Ave and Quincy Street. Pre-registration is required for this free event.

World Plone Day is a once a year event when people interested in the Plone open source content management system get together to share experiences, ideas, and fun. Seminars, presentations, lectures, and discussions explore what Plone is and what it can do for you and your organization.

The 2008 Boston event was held last November and featured apples, cider, and model airplanes from Wingware - not to mention presentations and panel discussions. This year's event is being moved up to April, so it will not be so close to the annual Plone Conference, which is held in October.
