Plone for Education: Bibliographies, Take 2

Last year when Sally talked about bibliographies at the Plone Symposium Midwest, some of you said that the tools really should support CSL (Citation Style Language). This talk describes a new bibliography add-on that does just that.

Plone for Education: Bibliographies

Websites targeted at academic audiences can serve a variety of purposes, but no matter what the discipline, bibliographic references are a common theme. We introduce a new tool for styling bibliographies in Plone.

Academic Websites in Plone

Websites targeted at academics have common themes. This talk describes why Plone is well suited to academic websites and discusses some of the most important add-ons that target academic problems.

Managing Agile CMS Projects

All the pieces have fallen into place for that big website project. You've chosen a CMS, you've lined up the budget, you've gathered a team of developers, you've selected a design firm. You've worked with all the stakeholders and come up with a long list of features. The CMS will provide many of them, but some will need custom development. How are you going to manage the project?

Online Exhibits in Plone - Round 2

Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection recently completed a major website redesign, with Plone as their chosen CMS, and online exhibits are an important part of the new site. They wanted many features, but they also wanted online exhibits to be easy for content editors - even interns - to create.

Online Exhibits in Plone

Museums, libraries, art institutes, and many other types of organizations need online exhibits - websites that mimic the experience of walking through a gallery discovering interesting and beautiful objects. Sally describes the open source package that we have created for Dumbarton Oaks, and our incremental approach to defining and implementing it.

How To Get a Fabulous Website on a Modest Budget Using Plone

The University of Minnesota Press had big ideas about what they wanted their website to do, but a budget that common wisdom would judge too modest for those aspirations. Sally and Alec Mitchell describe how Jazkarta was able to create the site that UMP dreamed of within their budget constraints using Plone.

Pyramid Deployment and Maintenance

Carlos shows how a Pyramid application can be deployed using a front end web server like Apache or Nginx. He also covers how to automate deployment using buildout and a PyPI clone, and post-deployment creation of a variety of maintenance scripts and cron jobs that perform application specific tasks through Pyramid.

ZODB Tips and Tricks

We may know that our content is safely stored in the ZODB, but there's a lot more than the Zope Object Database can do for us. In this talk Carlos covers some tips and tricks to do things like rescue crashed databases, do ad-hoc reports of database objects, view the contents of the ZODB outside of Plone, use relstorage and more.

Plone is great... Python is too!

So you decided to use Plone for your project or are considering it. One of the greatest benefits about that decision is that you get to work with Python. Don't stay on the shallow end of the pool, go deeper into Python! Carlos shows how you can use it to make your site work better and maybe even create some independent Python apps.

Agile Development with Plone

Sally describes Jazkarta's approach to managing a Plone website development project in an agile fashion, with a part time, distributed team. Topics include roles, scheduling, estimation, and project management tools.

Moving to the Cloud

"The Cloud" is a buzzword these days, but in this talk Nate and Sally describe what you need to know about public and private clouds, why it's important, and why you might want to consider it for your company/organization.
