I'm pleased to announce the first ever Plone sprint in Boston will be  
held on July 18-23, 2007!
Thanks to our sponsor, the Christian Science Monitor, for providing  
the space in which to hold the sprint. We are very fortunate to have  
the use of these facilities in such a beautiful space in the heart of  
Boston's Back Bay neighborhood!

Get more info and register on the sprint page: http://plone.org/ 

The theme for the sprint is to further improve the Plone4Artists  
suite of products (see http://plone4artists.org), which includes  
proposed topics such as:

Proposed topics
- application of Zope 3 component architecture to building products  
for Plone
- handling of multimedia files within Plone (audio, video, images)
- embedding externally hosted multimedia content in a Plone site
- podcasting and vodcasting
- large file handling
- bulk uploading using WebDAV, Flash, Java, Zip
- calendaring incl. iCalendar import/export, recurring events
- tagging, commenting, rating of multimedia (or any) content
- and more...!

Not just for coders!
You don't have to be a coder in order to contribute/benefit at the  
sprint. There's also a need for persons to write documentation, make  
screencasts, test the software and share ideas! You are very welcome  
to come and learn more about the Plone development process and share  
your experiences as a user and integrator.

Optional training
Sprinters have an opportunity to receive two days of training  
immediately preceding the sprint (July 16-17): "Zope 3 Training for  
Plone Developers" conducted by Rocky Burt, a leading Zope 3 expert,  
Plone framework team member, contributor to the popular book "Web  
Component Development with Zope 3", and main developer of the  
Plone4Artists suite of products. Get more info and register today to  
reserve your spot!
Seeking additional sponsors
Please consider showing your support by contributing financially.  
Sponsoring the sprint will help to cover costs for the sprinting or  
for participants' costs getitng there. Sponsoring Plone sprints is  
one of the best ways to contribute to Plone's development if you dont  
have the skills/time do the work yourself.	http://plone.org/events/ 

Hope to see you in Boston!
