From baypiggies presentation: As the first object publishing framework ever, Zope has been through several major overhauls and developed a bad reputation along the way. The reformulation of pylons and repoze into pyramid presents a great opportunity for zope to get back some street cred and offer sincere alternatives to front running frameworks like Django. This discussion will cover the current state of zope based technologies including repoze/pyramid, grok, bluebream and plone. It will look at the best use cases for each framework, strengths, weaknesses, and deal breakers. If there is time/interest we will look at the zodb and other core zope concepts that you will find in each framework.
