Space Still Available for Theming Plone 4 Class at Plone Conference 2011
August 22, 2011
The class, taught by Six Feet Up's Chrissy Wainwright, is being presented prior to the Plone Conference 2011 on the campus of San Francisco State University on Nov 1-2. The deadline for taking advantage of an early-bird discount on the class is August 31st.
This two-day training session includes front-end design of a Plone 4 site from start to finish through traditional Plone theming. Usage of plone.app.theming (Diazo for Plone) will also be covered. The training will be a hands-on, introductory walk-through of the process, using a pre-created sample design. Attendees will need their computers and will be expected to follow along on their own local instances.
The training will cover paster, base themes, base_properties/DTML, Generic Setup, customizing and creating viewlets, portlets, templates, and theming with plone.app.theming. You can find out more about the class here.
Chrissy Wainwright, Six Feet Up's Senior Template Developer has implemented Plone themes for dozens of sites, including indianahistory.org, uvahealth.com, and itsoc.org.
