Topic: ZOPE - An Open Source Web Development Framework

Speakers: Rob Page, CEO and President,
Zope Corporation <http://www.zope.com>

Please keep an eye out for a series of _MONTHLY_ meetings which
we have confirmed for February, March and April 2005.
The meeting schedule is posted below (all on the 3rd Thursday).

We are finally holding our meeting on Web Development and Zope!
This meeting was supposed to be a followup our meeting on Python
(March 2003), but it wound up being delayed for various reasons
and due to various events (including things like the Solaris 10
launch). During this time, our friends at Zope Corporation have
been patient, and they have been waiting for the chance to present
Zope to Unigroup. We do appreciate their support!

I've called Zope a "Web Development Framework", but from what
I've read, it may be much more than this (see below). Major
corporations are using Zope to build web sites and bring content
to market. One such example is Computer Associates... see their
press release about CA and Zope Corp:

Also note that we expect to have CA present to Unigroup, later in
the year, and they were also invited to participate in this
week's Zope meeting.



To REGISTER for this event, please RSVP by using the Unigroup
Registration Page:
This will allow us to automate the registration process.
(Registration will also add you to our mailing list.)

Please continue to check the Unigroup web site and meeting page,
for any last minute updates concerning this meeting. If you
registered for this meeting, please check your email for any
last minute announcements as the meeting approaches.

Please try to RSVP as soon as possible.

Note: RSVP is not mandatory for this location, but it does help
us to properly plan the meeting (food, drinks, handouts,
seating, etc.).



This month's meeting will be a presentation on ZOPE:
- What is Zope?
- Who uses the platform?
- What is possible with the platform?
- The Zope Community and Activities (e.g., Sprints)
- Platform Futures
The Zope Software System:
(Extracted from http://www.zope.com/Corporate/CompanyProfile.html)

Zope is a unique software system: a high-performance application
server, a web server, and a content management system. It is a
complete, self-contained solution, that includes a robust,
scalable object database, web services architecture, and powerful
programming capabilities. It is designed for customization and
extensibility. Its components integrate tightly with a wide range
of leading web server and database systems. Zope promotes rapid
creation and deployment of complex applications, totally
manageable through a web interface. All of this, and complete
open source access, are provided without cost. There are no
licensing or runtime fees for the software.

What Is Zope?
(Extracted from http://www.zope.org/WhatIsZope)

Zope is an open source web application server primarily written in
the Python programming language. It features a transactional
object database which can store not only content and custom data,
but also dynamic HTML templates, scripts, a search engine, and
relational database (RDBMS) connections and code. It features a
strong through-the-web development model, allowing you to update
your web site from anywhere in the world. To allow for this, Zope
also features a tightly integrated security model. Built around
the concept of "safe delegation of control", Zope's security
architecture also allows you to turn control over parts of a web
site to other organizations or individuals. The transactional
model applies not only to Zope's object database, but to many
relational database connectors as well, allowing for strong data
integrity. This transaction model happens automatically, ensuring
that all data is successfully stored in connected data sources by
the time a response is returned to a web browser or other client.

There are numerous products (plug-in Zope components) available
for download to extend the basic set of site building tools.
These products include new content objects; relational database
and other external data source connectors; advanced content
management tools; and full applications for e-commerce, content
and document management, or bug and issue tracking. Zope includes
its own HTTP, FTP, WebDAV, and XML-RPC serving capabilities, but
can also be used with the Apache or other web servers.
