Book Review: Plone 3 Theming

Monday June 21, 2010 | Comments (0)

"Plone 3 Theming" was published in July 2009 by Veda Williams, a Plone developer for Groundwire.

My first IndyPy Meeting

Saturday April 24, 2010 | Comments (0)

I'm Jim, one of the newest Sixies here at Six Feet Up. This past week, I got the opportunity to attend IndyPy. I'm a recent transplant to Indiana coming here from Florida.
