What is PLOG?

The Plone Open Garden is the perfect event to understand the future of Plone and to make it happen: share your ideas, show your new developments, dive into your favourite topics discussing them in the garden, take in some free training, and sprint around-the-clock to bring them to reality.

Training and Discussions

Training & Discussions

Every day will include talks and discussions about Plone, Volto, Guillotina and friends and allow you to meet with members of the community. You may choose to take the free training classes or sprint right away. The agenda and sprint topics will be built together with all attendees, so don’t hesitate to send us your proposals at

Since 2007, Hotel Mediterraneo’s garden offers the right environment to work with focus and energy, without forsaking a good deal of fun and relaxation! The entire venue hosts compelling activities and discussions, plus a bar and a swimming pool!

A sprint is the opportunity for you to write code and documentation together with other Plonistas. During the preceding weeks the list of topics on which the sprint will focus will be published. Tell us what you'd like to work on, dropping a line to or by posting your ideas in our forum!

The PLOG ticket

Being part of PLOG is easy.

PLOG will take place April 19 to 26, 2020, in Sorrento, Italy. Admission to PLOG is free and open to everyone who wants to be in touch with Plone’s community. You can come alone or together with your friends and family, snatching the opportunity to visit beautiful Sorrento. Being part of it is simple: just sign up by filling out the registration form. The deadline is February 28!

Training included!

At PLOG you can take awesome free training from the developers making Plone's future come to life. It's halfway between Plone Conferences so a great time for a refresher. Training classes will be given most mornings - details are announced around the first of the year. Attendees can also request short "Ask the experts" sessions during the sprint - the experts will be there, and they'll be happy to answer your questions.

We love PLOG.

Since 2007, when the Abstract team inaugurated the event, the Plone community has continued to evolve the PLOG experience, collecting your feedback and refining the organization year after year. Here are some Plonistas who have fallen in love with PLOG.

Philip Bauer

"PLOG is a chance to continue some of the work to improve Plone I started years ago. To do so, I need the help of the community."

Matt Hamilton

"PLOG is a great event to talk about the wider community of Plone. And, you know, the pool, the weather and the lovely wine ... all part of it"

Paul Roeland

"At PLOG? Well ... to meet with the other Plone people, to advance things that the Plone Foundation needs, to learn myself, to share a lovely experience"

Antonio De Marinis

"PLOG is the right place if you need networking with the community of Plone, understanding where Plone is heading and being on track"

Erico Andrei

"Do-ocracy is our community's really cool concept. People at PLOG actually do stuff, go forward and try to make the difference. So, PLOG .. it's a kind of ... impossible not to come"

Here's why PLOG is free.

Love has no price. That's why admission to PLOG is free and open. Plone community organizers believe in these kind of events, which were born to keep up the interest in the community and allow people to meet face-to-face and share ideas.

Being guests at Hotel Mediterraneo.

Being guests at Hotel Mediterraneo is the best way to experience PLOG because it allows you to stay together with the other participants and spares you from having to commute to and from the venue.

The Hotel Mediterraneo sits atop a cliff straight over the sea, in one of the most beautiful spots of the Sorrento Peninsula, a short walk from the city center and a few kilometers away from the archeological sites of Ercolano and Pompei; and from there you can reach the island of Capri in just 15 minutes by boat.

We have obtained discounted prices for PLOG. There is a range of accomodation options available, depending on the type of room you choose. This offer is valid on a limited number of allocated rooms, if reserved before February 28, 2020. More details are listed on the event page.

Pay less and share the PLOG experience.

One of the best parts of PLOG is sharing, even of the same room, because passion knows no schedules. Invite your friends and your colleagues to PLOG and book a room for all of you, or visit our forum at and find other people within the Plone community who are willing to pay less by sharing a room.
