PSE12 will feature two keynote speakers, Paul Roeland, integrator, organizer, and open-source advocate; and Jim Groom, director of the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies and adjunct professor at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The event also will feature 25 speaker sessions focusing on Plone tricks and tips, best practices, how-to presentations, education theory, and more.
