Notes from Training Team Meeting on 2016-05-19
Attendants: Fulvio Casali, JC Brand, Sally Kleinfeld, Calvin Hendryx-Parker, Guido Stevens, Chrissy Wainwright, Sven Strack, Philip Bauer...
We probably have some classrooms at MIT
We have 2 rooms at a location withing 15min by foot
We have another location downtown (30min subway+foot) that would mostly be used for the 1- and 2-day-trainings (so people have little commute-time)
Training slots will be: 9am-1pm and 2pm-6pm
Housing for trainers
We'll try to get 1-2 houses to house all the trainers. No further news yet.
State of trainings at ploneconf
We went through all the trainings and discussed their state. See https://docs.google.com/document/d/1EmGV8GH6_mmJ25bthiioQvNqCQ6u2bYHIDyuq-yWYgg for full details.
Noteable or new:
We'll try to have 4 instances of "Learn Plone!" that walk-ins can attend for free. So we need either one trainer who does the same four times or several trainers.
Philip will ask Fred about the state of "Learn Plone!" and "Configuring Plone"
Philip will ask Chris Ewing to share the Pyramid-Training Docs with Paul Everitt (and Guido Stevens)
We'll ask Steve McMahon to give a second instance of "Creating custom content-types with Dexterity (part 1 of Hacking Plone)"
We'll ask David Bain if he could give a second instance of "Theming Plone with Diazo (part 2 of Hacking Plone)" and/or assist Eric with the other instance.
We'll ask Fulvio to give a second instance of "Creating custom layouts with Mosaic (part 3 of Hacking Plone)"
We'll ask Alec Mitchell to give the "Customizing search" training.
We'll drop "Making a Plone Blog" in favor of Calvin Hendryx-Parker doing a short (15min) talk on that during "Make a Pyramid MicroBlog" by Paul Everitt
Paul Everitt will give a half-day Training "Make a Pyramid MicroBlog" and a half-day PyCharm-Tutorial.
We'll try to have a Advanced Python Training (1 or 2 Days) based on some aspects of the Book "Fluent Python". Tiram Oz (Munich) might volunteer, but we'll also ask Luciano Ramalho who is the author of that amazing book.
Philip will update https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10ZTZIPKULnPEFyhMtixgqO3wp2Ll1XU0z8PyZ6ynjc0 to hold all trainings with their respective length.
I short, we are still looking for trainers for the following trainings:
- Patternslib/Mockup for Plone-Integrators
- Learn Plone!
- Customizing search
- Advanced Python
- Agile Software Development Methods
Setup for trainings
The ttw-trainigns will use Heroku. Alec Mitchell will talk to Eric Bréhault about the Heroku-Button and the set of add-ons that is needed.
Some development classes (Component Architecture, Pyramid) will probably expect a locally running virtualenv and buildout.
Sven made great progress with a new theme for the frontpage and structure of the trainings (see Announcing the next Training Team Meeting)
We'll open a new thread on https://community.plone.org to discuss that.
Philip will coordinate with Sven to move mastering Plone into a seperate folder in https://github.com/plone/training undtil next week.
Philip will schedule the next hangout in mid-June.
P.S.: Even though JC will not do the Patternslib/Mockup-Training we really want him to come to the conference
