Mastering Plone 6 Development¶
Mastering Plone Development is intended as a training to learn proven practices of Plone development. It’s both, an online course and a sketch for an on-the-spot training.
The story of a conference platform provides a week-long training of several development topics that can be split in two trainings:
A beginner training (2 to 3 days) covering the essentials of Plone and Plone Volto.
An advanced training (3 to 5 days) with additional advanced topics.
This is the Mastering Plone 6 Development Training.
Mastering Plone 6 Development Training supplements Mastering Plone 5 with known best practices for customizing and developing Plone 6: Plone Classic + frontend.
In chapters handling Volto React frontend is a link to a chapter that covers the corresponding tasks in Plone Classic, and vice versa.
Plone 6 is not yet released and thus the training is a work in-progress and there are still some rough edges.
