More About the Author

Erik is the language-processing and search guy at Votizen. Previously, he wrangled Python at Mozilla, coding some of the highest-trafficked Django sites in the world. He's also sojourned in the Zope and Plone universe, where he wrote several popular Plone plugins, served on the Framework Team, and authored the book Plone 3 for Education. Erik has spoken at PyCon, DjangoCon, and the Plone conference, maintains a raft of libraries, and, in his spare time, thinks about how to make formal languages fit humans' brains more closely.

Format: Paperback
I was one of the technical reviewers for this book, and am gratified to see its release. Erik is knowledgeable, and the book's content is well-chosen and thoroughly up-to-date. Erik is also a fine writer, with a clear, clever prose style, and this is probably the most readable of the current Plone books.

Although the book's title includes "for Education," this book will be valuable for anyone managing Plone in an workplace that has multiple work groups with different responsibilities, all managing their own content. This kind of environment is where Plone shines, and Erik shows you the state-of-the-art combination of deployment techniques and add-on products to make it work for departments, committees and individuals. He also discusses solid techniques for creating your own Plone extensions to adapt this already versatile web CMS to your organization's particular needs.

The book is also not just for Plone 3. Plone 4 is coming very soon, and Erik's a member of the Framework Team that reviewed and selected features for Plone 4. The Plone features and add-ons he discusses are carefully chosen from the Plone mainstream; they'll work as well in 4 as 3.

Another note for those who know Erik. Erik is famous as Plone's friendly grinch: someone always challenging anything he sees as a comfortable orthodoxy, whether it's for deployment or development. If you're concerned that Erik's errant Platonism might compromise the practicality of the book, though, rest easy. This book is practical and main stream. Erik shows off solid, well-understood, well-supported ways of using Plone -- even when he earlier argued that the same features would compromise hopelessly the whole effort's mathematical purity.

Format: Paperback
Plone 3 for Education is a very practical book. It presents clear goals, with step-by-step instructions to reach them, without magically sounding jargon. Spreading some hard earned wisdom, it shows you a safe route through Plone land, giving solid advice that will keep you out of the pitfalls of this great CMS. I think a lot of people could benefit from this.

For two more detailed reviews of this book see my weblog. First an in-depth look at Chapter 7 about creating forms with PloneFormGen and then a chapter-by-chapter review, with recommendations on who should read that chapter.
