World Plone Day Toronto 2008 Reflections

On Friday November 7th, the Toronto Plone Users put on a World Plone Day event at the Center for Social Innovation in Toronto, Canada.

Over 40 people showed up to listen to 5 talks that ranged from an introduction to Plone, several case studies and a technical talk covering rapid application development with Plone. We raffled away two books that were generously donated by O'Reilly.

We streamed live via ustream.tv and the recordings and slides from the presenters are now available.

Based on our pre-event survey we had a wide range of attendees: new to Plone, developers, managers and end-users from corporate, non-profit and government sectors. We consider the event to be a huge success!

The event was sponsored by my company Scryent, and co-sponsors Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT) and Softwerke.

Hugh Ranalli of DOT also blogged about the event.

The November Toronto Plone Users is meeting today, Tuesday November 11.
