Zope for Education

A very exciting announcement about a partnership between Duke University and the Zope organization. Those of us who have been lobbying for our institutions to look seriously at Zope have just gained some useful ammunition.

Go NC schools! (none / 0) (#1)

Interesting... what is it about those North Carolina schools (see also: here and here) that causes them to innovate like that?



ps: So what are others (Art?) doing with Zope... any "in production" projects?

Out, out brief candle!
... it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

Hello from Duke Libraries (none / 0) (#3)

I'm glad to see the news of our Zope development made it to /usr/lib/info. :-)

The library has been one of the prime movers behind Duke's move toward CMS for web management, and one of the strongest advocates for consideration of open source systems in general and Zope in particular. We're glad about the way things have worked out, though it's taken a lot of time for things to get rolling.

So far we've only been using Zope internally for Squishdot sites, wikis, and other intranet type applications. We're currently beginning the learning process for Zope Corp's CMS product, which they are customizing for higher ed (as described in the announcement linked above), and plan to begin migrating our current web site into the Zope CMS in the spring.

I'll plan to update this group with news as we make progress, and feel free to e-mail me if you have particular questions about what we're doing.

As the OEM, many (none / 0) (#5)

As the OEM, many readers felt it was completely Dell's responsibility. "I have a rhetorical question for Dell," wrote one reader. "If they are always bragging in their commercials that 'award-winning service comes standard,' then why charge $149 for software support? Isn't that an option and not a standard? I haven't bought a PC from Dell, but if I paid $1600 for a PC I would expect support to come standard, since they are selling me a complete PC which includes Microsoft products. If that's the case, then the standard support should extend to those included products."Dan had the idea of establishing a permanent irc channel on freenode. The idea is that it could be an informal place to chat about coding in and for libraries. It's a newbie friendly channel so feel free to join us if you've never used irc before...and if you are a veteran that's ok too :-)
