Lightning talks Friday
The Friday Lightning talks at the Plone Conference 2019 in Ferrara.
Demo of tool for online risk assessment. Export to Word (with python-docx). Training module. Export to Powerpoint presentation with python-pptx.
State of Plone Intranet in 2019. Dozens of packages. Social stream, search, auditing, real-time document collaboration. Classifieds app makes it nice to share info, legal app showing contracts. PAS graph optimizations, see talk by Alessandro. SVG rendering. Progressive web app, we did not want to create a special app, but it does really give a mobile experience.
Busy supporting Plone 5.2 and Python 3, we will manage that. We will use crossbar.io for push notifications. Encryption via CWS. Johannes is joining Syslab to work on Quaive fulltime. iMio is helping too.
The last of my three easy pieces on Ferrara.
vini delle sabie is a wine. Sand is influencing the grapes. The grapes are actually immune to some diseases. Most typical is de fortana grape. Give it a try. Perfect companion to the dishes I talked about.
Example package with LDAP setup. Uses pas.plugins.ldap, which is a replacement for plone.app.ldap. The core package now supports wildcard search, with help from Asko Soukka. Robert Niederreiter did a lot of work to get it working on Python 3. LDAPS support.
Desktop document generation (.odt, .pdf, .doc, ...) based on appy framework and OpenOffice/LibreOffice. Templating in LibreOffice.
9 to 11 March 2020 in Dresden. Talks and sprints. Come!
We plan to create quickstart Plone trainings for Python devs, one for frontend devs, one for users. Mastering Plone 5.2 talks about a lot, you should follow it.
But what about mastering Plone 6. It would need to be about backend and frontend. I would love feedback about what would be required. We do not want to overwhelm people.
I present three PAS plugins:

There was a treasure hunt this week, where every day you had to find three items in the city and make pictures. We show the solutions.
The next two days we will have Plone sprints. Everyone is welcome. It is a great chance to share code, get to know the Plone code, ask questions to coders, and generally work together. We will find someone to pair up with you.
See the list of sprint topics. You can work on other stuff, you can add ideas, also when you will not work on it. You can add your name to topics when you are interested, also multiple topics.
People could suggest add-ons, and then people voted for them. Clear winners:
- plone.restapi (in core now actually)
- and more
The Plone conference next year will be in... Namur, Belgium. November 16-22.
