  11. 11. I am the IT manager at xxx. We are currently creating our new website which sits on the Plone CMS. We are creating templates for various updateable pages on our website such as courses etc and have tried to incorporate the datagrid widget into our existing template. When we do so and try to create a new course template it returns an error message stating the 'field' parameter is undefined. Meillä olisi tarvetta saada suomenkieliset käännökset Ploneboard ja Quills producteihin. Olisiko teillä kiinnostusta moiseen projektiin ja mihin hintaan moinen järjestyisi? Käännökset voi lähettää myös sovelluksen tekijöille, jolloin ne saisi kätevästi käännettynä suoraan Pypi:stä. We are a small company here in Norway working on our first commercial python product. So we would like to talk to others that have succesfully created and distributed commecial python applications for S60. We would also be intersted talking to you about hiring you for parts of our project if that would be something you would be interrested in. Mikko Ohtamaa mikko.ohtamaa@twinapex.com
  12. 12. Should we participate?  Software creators: Are you doing software that someone else is doing but you are not the very best at it?  Software users: You can access vendors, tap into open innovation and foster ecosystems around non-core activities Mikko Ohtamaa mikko.ohtamaa@twinapex.com
