Oh, the Places we've been! Plone 2001 - 2020

Fulvio Casali, https://2020.ploneconf.org/speakers/fulvio-casali

A brief compendium of Plone's history. I've read hundreds of plone.org news items, so you don't have to. In the process, I discovered lots of precious nuggets of our collective lore, some evergreen, some almost forgotten, sure to evoke warm fuzzy memories for the grizzled veterans among us.

The Experiment Folks, I have added the list of tags to the style guide: https://plone.org/news/plone-org-style-guide Here is your assignment of news item years to tag (you can use the links to the year collections in the right portlet). I discovered that if I assigned everyone 3 years we could do them all, so that's what I did. ● Sally: 2020, 2019, 2008, 2002 ● Rikupekka: 2018, 2017, 2007 ● Erico: 2016, 2015, 2006 ● Fulvio: 2014, 2013, 2005 ● William: 2012, 2011, 2004 ● Norbert: 2010, 2009, 2003 Thanks!

  28. 28. What is your “Great Divide” moment?
  29. 29. Conclusions
  30. 30. Practical Observations Ever tried Plone as a user? Tools to help manage large amounts of content (i.e. “Content Quality”) In the earliest Plone releases, the plone.org site was being upgraded/migrated as part of the release process by the core developer team. We need that.
  31. 31. Conclusions Think differently about Plone in 2021 and beyond It is unhelpful to compare the present to the past Keep what works (Sprints, Conferences, Foundation) Support the people/companies/clients we have Invest in the greatest promise
  32. 32. Thank You
