[This is a general call for offers to interested parties. Apologies for
my organisation needs to hold one or more sessions of Zope training to
meet current and future development and deployment needs. We use Zope as
one of several (Web-)Application frameworks, and we typically need to
interface and cooperate with external data sources (for example, User
Management with Kerberos and other external User Sources providing user
data - meaning we cannot base our UserFolders' data on Zope alone).
We will have a group of 8-12 people, most - if not all - experienced
developers who will need to learn how to develop Applications on Zope,
CMF, Plone and CPS. Participants can be assumed to know how to develop
in Python (we will make sure of that).
We also want to focus on efficient ways to make Zope talk to Oracle,
LDAP and MySQL (in that order) in an efficient and speedy manner, and
how to develop high-speed, clusterable (ZEO) solutions with Zope-based
At the end of the course(s) we expect the participants to be able to
have a thorough understanding of what kind of frameworks Zope, CMF,
Plone and CPS are, what their differences and their similarities are.
We also expect participants to know how to customise, adapt and develop
applications based on Zope, CMF, CPS and Plone, how to develop add-ons
to the above and how to develop Products that work with all of CMF, CPS
To clarify, we also expect participants to be tought development
techniques with File System based tools - not only on the Product level
but on a solution level (i.e. all customisations, etc, of a site should
be script/FS based as well).
The course(s) are scheduled to be held in March-April and possibly May,
at Chalmers University of technology, Göteborg, Sweden.
We are not exclusively looking for a single party to provide courses for
all of Zope, CMF, CPS and Plone; for example, you are welcome to offer
training that only covers Plone or CPS.
While many of our participants can read and write english very well,
they may be untrained in communicating verbally in English. It is
therefore a plus if trainers are fluent in Swedish - it is an absolute
requirement that trainers have good English communicative skills.
