Be sure to arrive in Boston by Monday morning so you can take advantage of the training opportunities. There's something for everyone - classes about Plone, classes about other Python web technologies, classes for content editors, for integrators, for themers, and for hard core developers. You'll be able to attend whichever classes you want.
Interested in Plone but not able to attend the conference? Have we got a deal for you! Learn Plone, an introduction to content editing, is free and open to the public!
Note that classes for developers generally require familiarity with Python, classes for integrators mostly do not - the latter focus on functionality that is accessible through the web (TTW).
