It’s been a few years since I last attended a Plone sprint.
And that is by no means for lack of desire. I fantasize about spending a year attending every Plone (and Python) related event on the planet, but I’ve got a ways to go before I can make that dream a reality.
In the meantime, I’m excited to announce that the stars have aligned in February 2011 and I am planning to attend the Cioppino sprint AKA West Coast “Snow” Sprint (plane tickets purchased!)
But, I really need everyone’s help to make this trip a success. While I would love to be able to afford it, our financial stars have not aligned for February 2011 and I will be seeking donations in order to offset the cost of travel and lodging.
I’ll be spending (at least) two full days working on Plone-related tasks, for whatever you can guestimate that may be worth (in a consulting context.) And in addition to helping out however I can with thescheduled tasks, I have a long list of admin tasks I would like to try and tackle:
Time I donate to the Plone project is a labor of love, but there are “real world” implications. If you have enjoyed, or otherwise benefited from any of the following, I would appreciate your generous contribution right now; very, very much!
I am trying to raise $1,000 USD to cover the following:
I would appreciate any amount you can afford to give, to help-me-help-Plone be as great as it can be!
Please use the Chip-in below, or if you prefer (for all you anti-flash-ites), you can donate directly via PayPal with my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all, very much, in advance.
