Plone 5, all the content for all the people, all the time
Plone is the premier Python CMS. It has a long and storied history. In this talk I will give some history of where Plone came from, talk about the reasons it has been developed, and speak about how it has reached a place where it makes it easy for new users to create powerful websites safely. I will explain a bit about the Plone community and how this shapes the development of the software. Finally, I will invite developers, designers and documenters to join the Plone community and help this wonderful project to continue serving the widest possible selection of users.
