Getting started with Zope for Linux and Solaris

zopeDue to the increased complexity of Web applications, programmers have hit the limit of what can be done with CGI. Zope provides the basic services provided by CGI, such as allowing users to log on to e-commerce web sites and community portals in order to receive personalized content, all while making software development easier. In this article, I will cover what Zope is, how you install it on a Linux or UNIX system, and explain a few of the concepts you'll need to understand in order to be able to be productive with it.

Let's face it: It's become harder and harder to tell the difference between content and software on the web. After all, knowledge databases, search engines, content management systems, Web logs, and even our own discussion forums blur the lines every day. Static content just isn't enough these days, and with the increased demands placed on those web applications, they're fast becoming more and more complex.

It used to be that programmers could do whatever they needed with CGI (Common Gateway Interface). Due to the increased complexity of Web applications, programmers have hit the limit of what can be done with it.

Enter Zope.

Zope provides the basic services provided by CGI, such as allowing users to logon to e-commerce web sites and community portals in order to receive personalized content, all while making software development easier. In this article, I will cover what Zope is, how you install it on a Linux or UNIX system, and explain a few of the concepts you'll need to understand in order to be able to be productive with it. I'll presume that you're at least a little bit familiar with object-oriented programming. This isn't a comprehensive installation and configuration manual - there are already enough of those. This is more of a "what is it and how do I use it to make my life easier/get my boss off my back" article.
