From October 10 to 16, the Plone 2022 Conference, has taken place in Namur, Belgium with 300 participants from 30 countries. Training, talks, sprint, whatever you want about Plone. But the annual conference is remembered chiefly as an excellent opportunity for the Plone Community to share new developments, discuss success stories, and continue to shape the future of the community. Once again CodeSyntax attended PloneConf with his team, 6 people of our Plone experts (Mikel, Lur, Nagore, Ion, Unai, Gorka) were in Namur.


Plone is the free software of reference in the CMS market, content management systems. A powerful tool to manage websites made in Python. The annual conference is a chance for the Plone community to come together to share new developments, success stories, and the future of the community. Taking place over 9 days, the conference will feature training, keynotes, talks, open spaces, sprints, and social activities

The PloneConf or Plone Conference is a veteran event in which we have been in person for other years, both in Europe and on other continents.

Mikel himself gave a talk about "How to deploy Volto sites automatically in non-docker scenarios", info and video-streamed available here. The slides used in talk are also available online

During the first day of the conference, Mikel also gave a lightning talk about volto-react-table-widget a widget for Volto that we have prepared during the development of the new Copernicus land monitoring service site for the EEA. The slides of the talk are also online.
