unfortunately the Mockup talk collided with the hosting panel discussion and a significant part of you did not
hear the latest news from the Heroku world: we can now have "Deploy to Heroku" buttons that allow anyone
to spin up their own free Plone site on Heroku: https://github.com/niteoweb/heroku-button-plone

I'd like us to come together and make a plan on how we can leverage Heroku to provide something along
the lines of:
* have a demo instance (that is rebuild after an hour of inactivity) for every popular add-on (Paragon winners
for example) and have this instance always running the latest add-on code
* try.plone.org: a simple page with "Deploy Plone 4.3 to Heroku", "Deploy Plone 5 to Heroku" etc. buttons
that would allow evaluators to try out Plone quickly and budget-limited teams to have their very own Plone
base website/intranet, for free

There will be a short open space session tomorrow to decide what we wanna do and set priorities, followed
by a sprint on Saturday. If you are a maintainer of a popular add-on, *please* take 20 minutes on Saturday
to get a demo of your add-on up for people to use.
