Here is what folks are saying about Plone Symposium East

"Plone Symposium East combines the best of both technical expertise, but also a rare close up contact with those on the front-line using and supporting the software within both commercial and academic sectors. A fantastically diverse group of attendees you will come away with your head buzzing with new ideas and solutions to any problems you come with."

Matt HamiltionMatt Hamilton, President, Plone Foundation and Technical Director, Netsight Internet Solutions, UK

"WebLion's Plone Symposium East has become an event we wouldn't miss each year. It brings together people to collaborate, share and teach in an intimate environment. I've always found that the community was one of the greatest things about Plone and this is a outstanding opportunity to join in the fun."

Calvin Hendryx-ParkerCalvin Hendryx-Parker CTO Six Feet Up, Inc

"PSE is always the event I look forward to attending each year. A surprisingly wide range of educational institutions from around the world send inspired and inspiring people to share with and learn from their peers how to make the most of Plone. Whether it's during the five-minute lightning talks, the 45-minute presentations, the keynote, the birds of a feather sessions, or just the mingling at meals, PSE is a nonstop learning process for me, a series of insights and things-to-try that fill up my to-do list for months to come. I also look forward to the mind expanding training opportunities and the high intensity yet welcoming sprints that allow us to work collaboratively and give back to the Plone community."

"… Your team (WebLion) always manages to put together a very balanced program that runs the gamut from educational theory (Chuck Severence from UMich), to insightful development and project management, to practical how-to presentations built for the neophyte or budding integrator / developer. … it's the incredible people of this community that make events like PSE so valuable…"
