Portlet insanity in Plone 3
by Roché Compaan — on Nov 09, 2007 —

Inspired by another great Plone Conference in Naples
by Roché Compaan — on Oct 31, 2007 —
- This year, I was looking forward to only travel 10 hours to the conference in Italy. Last year it took me a whole 20 hours to get Seattle. And you know what, I'll travel 40 hours if it means I can experience the magic that a Plone conference delivers. What impressed me most about this year's conference was the level of self-reflection the community had about how we got to where we are and what the current state of Plone is.
