We are lining up talks and demos of particular interest in the digital experience age. This year the conference will cover a variety of web technologies subjects in addition to Plone and will have plenty to offer to users, integrators, developers and designers. This year the conference, along with the usual Plone-related talks and keynotes will also have two additional tracks: Python Web Frameworks and Modern Javascript Frontends. Do you want to share your experiences in any of the tracks subjects? Please let us know!
