This meeting's talk is 
Plone, Zope, Pyramid, Django  
by Elizabeth Leddy 

   As the first object publishing framework ever, Zope has been 
through several major overhauls and developed a bad reputation 
along the way. 
   The reformulation of pylons and repoze into pyramid presents 
a great opportunity for zope to get back some street cred and 
offer sincere alternatives to front running frameworks like Django. 
   This discussion will cover the current state of zope based 
technologies including repoze/pyramid, grok, bluebream, and plone. 
It will look at the best use cases for each framework, strengths, 
weaknesses, and deal breakers. 
If there is time/interest we will look at the zodb and other core 
zope concepts that you will find in each framework.

   A python developer since the age of 18, I have been developing 
zope and plone applications for over 8 years. I am currently a 
member of the Plone Framework Team and actively develop in multiple 
Python frameworks. 
   I appreciate diversity in frameworks as well as OSS communities, 
so you'll frequently hear me talking about both.

an essential Python feature, especially for those new to Python.
