Because our last meeting led to some action, I thought I'd report and recap.

We had a good crowd including newcomers: Lee Nelson, Eric Leary, Mark 
Biggers, Don Hopkins, Brad Oaks. Jacob Roeper, Rob West, Chris Church, 
Chris Calloway, Scott Brady, and our host Paul Smith.

We discussed boot camps for 2008, agreeing to support a regular Plone 
boot camp, a boot camp geared for Plone 3 developers, and a Python boot 

I looked at the academic calendar and spoke to Joel Burton. He agreed to 
do both the usual Plone Boot Camp (5 day) and a Plone 3 Techniques (3 
day) Boot Camps. I proposed we add a 2 day 
workshop/sprint/lab/use-what-you-learned onto the end of the Plone 3 
Techniques Boot Camp. The Plone 3 Techniques is essentially the Naples 
training plus an additional day of Zope 3 foundations.

Joel and I agreed we can go ahead and tell the world about this. So I 
published placeholder events here:
