We have lined up talks and demos of particular interest in the digital experience age, with plenty to offer users, integrators, developers and designers. Along with our Plone-related talks and keynotes, the conference has two other tracks: Python Web Frameworks and Modern Javascript Frontends. Come learn and share your experiences!
