The Bastille Day Sprint 2013 will focus on advancing the plone.app.toolbar as well as Plone marketing efforts in general. The plone.app.toolbar is an essential component of the upcoming Plone 5 release plan. This sprint is a great opportunity for Plonistas to hone their Javascript skills.

Key dates:

Bastille Day celebration: July 13th from 5-11pm
Bastille Day sprint: July 14-17th, 2013


Six Feet Up Headquarters, 12 South Main Street, Fortville, IN 46040 - See map

We are about 1h away from the Indianapolis airport (IND), 2h from Cincinnati (CVG) and 3-4h from Chicago (ORD).

Key contacts:

Logistics: Gabrielle Hendryx-Parker (gabrielle@sixfeetup.com), Carol Ganz (carol@sixfeetup.com)
Agenda: Clayton Parker (clayton@sixfeetup.com), Rok Garbas (rok@garbas.si), Nathan Van Gheem (vangheem@gmail.com)


Lodging will be provided by various Sixies, unless sprinters prefer to pay for their own hotel room.

Food will be provided by Six Feet Up.

We will strive to provide free transportation from and to the IND airport. Ideally sprinters should arrive BEFORE Friday, July 12th, 10pm. Departure dates and times can be more flexible.

Sprinters who need financial support for their air travel should contact Carol Ganz (carol@sixfeetup.com).

Sprint Focus:

  1. Review the draft marketing plan
  2. Review the draft plone.com website
  3. Competitive analysis:
    • What are the (presumed) strong areas of other CMS systems? (both open source and proprietary systems)
    • In what direction are they currently evolving?
    • How do they compare to Plone features and development path?
    • Etc.
  4. Based on the participants' primary market areas, identify free publicity channels
