Synopses & Reviews
Zope is a powerful application server and content management system, but because it is an open-source technology there is a tremendous need for reliable, practical documentation showing developers how to leverage Zope to its fullest. Written by developers at Beehive Electronic Media Inc., one of the world's leading Zope consulting firms, Zope Web Application Construction Kit provides readers with a practical, straightforward guide — along with all the needed software — to setting up and developing powerful Web applications using Zope.
