Housing for trainers

We are currently booking a couple of places so we can house all trainers from 16.-23.10.2016 (Sunday to Sunday). We will have to share double-beds.
If you arrive earlier than Sunday or leave later than Sunday you'll have to make arrangements for these days yourself.
If you do not need housing since you have separate arrangements please send an email to me (


Trainers need to buy their own conference-tickets (same as the conference-organizers).

I moved "Mastering Plone" in it's own directory (see . Feel free to add your own training as a seperate directory as well (like Eric does with Please make pull-request when you merge complete trainings or whole chapters. If you only make fixes or small enhancements feel free to push directly to master.
