    • Users, permissions & roles, publishing workflows. Membership (member profiles).

    • Collections, Portlets & Portlet Managers.

    • Page templates, Views.

    • Creating webforms via the Plone interface with PloneFormGen.

    • "Dexterity" content types & behaviors for building a data-driven application.

    • Extending Plone with more features/services: Finding the recommended extension modules, installing the modules on the server, and adding them to the site.

    • Preview of Plone 5, the next major release of Plone.

    "Ask me anything": Propose a use case you would like to implement, and if Plone is suited for that use case, we will discuss the way to do it, and at least start an implementation.

    Participation is free. A donation of 20 CHF is suggested to cover the organization costs.

    Hi folks. I have to cancel the july 25 date, since we do not have enough potential participants... Holidays, etc.
    The next date is in september, and I hope we will have many interested people to start playing with Plone 5, Diazo theming, etc.

    July 18

    We now have around 6 people in the group, and there is interest into moving forward with learning and sharing our experiences with Plone.

    So tentatively setting the next meetup on july 25, and if there are at least 4 participants, we will maintain it.

    For the next meetups, we could predefine a meta-topic to focus one to improve the learning experience, and since half day is too short to talk about everything. Exemples of topics: "Theming with Diazo", "Plone 5 preview", "Installations with Buildout", Migrations, etc.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
