CodeSyntax will be at this year's Plone Conference. It's the 6th annual meeting that we attend, after the Ploneconf's in Napoli, Washington, Budapest, Bristol and last year's at San Francisco. The 2012 Ploneconf will be held at Arnhem, the Netherlands.

Ploneconf 2012 has been organized by a local company, Four Digits, from the 8th to the 14th of october. As in previous conferences, we will attend the full cicle: two days with training courses, three days of the conference proper, and two days more doing sprint programming for our favorite free CMS, Plone.

In our opinion, this year's Ploneconf is particularly attractive because of two motives: Diazo and Deco.

Many developers are already using Diazo to change the look & feel of Plone sites. No need to retouch the templates, XML-based rules are applied with a graphic editor embeded in Plone itself: this lets a designer with no specific Plone training  manipulate HTML and CSS directly. Diazo was introduced in Ploneconf 2011 at San Francisco, and one year's usage experience will give some perspective on this imporant tool.

Regarding Deco, this year's sprint is bound to be a breakthrough. Deco lets organize and present content dinamically, redefining the look of web pages, adding or hiding areas in the interface, with no need of programming. We hope to contribute to this effort at the Sea Sprint event.

As it happened last year, Lur Ibargutxi @libargutxi and myself, Mikel Larreategi @erralin will tweet from the conference and also make comments for this, the @codesyntax blog.
