Editorial Reviews


"The book can be considered the definitive guide to Zope 3. If the reader is looking for a book containing a set of tutorials on creating and using Web applications, this is a great choice."

Pectu Dana, Timisoara, Romania; ACM Computing Reviews, September 2006

"This book is at once thorough, brief, and concise. This is by far the best technical books i've read on any subject.

I have been interested in Zope for almost a year now, but even as a seasoned programmer I was intimidated by its labrythian complexity. I struggled for weeks reading the free Zope material and learning almost nothing. This book presents the material in an accessable manner while shying away from the horrible puns and awful jokes present in so many technical books. This book would be a bargin at twice its price."

D. Morrione, Hemet, CA,


From the Back Cover

Zope is a powerful Python web application platform for developing complex web applications rapidly and collaboratively. Zope 2, especially in combination with the Content Management Framework (CMF), has been the basis of several successful open source content management systems such as Plone. With version 3, Zope has been rebuilt on top of a Component Architecture that combines the best ideas available from modern web platforms.

This book focuses on Zope 3, though it also addresses the needs of Zope 2 developers who want to use Zope 3 features as they are backported into the Zope 2 platform. First, the key concepts of Zope and its Component Architecture are introduced. Each of Zope's capabilities is demonstrated by building a sample application and then extending it with more features. The book is targeted towards all developers familiar with web technologies such as HTTP, (X)HTML and XML, and Zope's implementation language itself: Python.

Format: Paperback
Even now with Zope 3 riding into the sunset and newer efforts like Grok and Bluebream taking hold this book mostly remains relevant. Plone, an already well established system for content management, uses many of the ideas explained in this book in its core. The book covers the foundation of the ZCA (Zope Component Architecture) which are essentially a system of patterns developers use. In short, any developer writing an app using a framework in the Zope ecosystem should consider this book.

I worked at it for a few years but it never clicked. I unloaded this book on Amazon Marketplace as a used book. Switched to Django. Now I can actually develop web apps.
