The Plone Symposium East 2010 and associated training sessions and programming sprints will make up a week of web development activity at Penn State during the week of May 24-30.

The Plone Symposium East 2010 highlights the week and will be held May 27-28 at the Nittany Lion Inn on the Penn State University Park campus in State College, Pennsylvania. The event will feature a variety of sessions, focused on Zope and Plone, that are targeted at beginners, integrators, and innovators in business and education.

On May 24-26, seven in-depth training sessions, including several of general interest to web developers, will be offered. The general interest sessions are part of Chris Calloway’s PyCamp—an intensive introduction to Python, JavaScript, and jQuery. While the jQuery session will cover applications to Plone, the information can be generalized to other content management systems and to static pages.

More information about these and other training sessions are available at the Symposium web page:
