Zope, a Python-based application server, is migrating to the component architecture of Zope 3. "Be more Pythonic" is a major goal of Zope 3, while also letting Python developers eat Zope one bite at a time through better modularization.
The Zope 3 component architecture is a major theme at the Plone Conference in Vienna, Sep 20-22:
The tutorial track includes a Zope 3 tutorial from Jim Fulton, a tutorial by Martijn Faassen on the "Five" project to bring Zope 3 into Zope 2, and even a tutorial on Boa Constructor with Riaan Booysen.
Also, the developers of several content management products for Zope are getting together before the conference for a sprint on "The Future of Content Management with Zope 3". Jim's conference keynote will discuss the results of this effort.
This will be a major conference, with attendance expected to top the 250 mark. Registration is still open:
