Zope QuickStart

Welcome to Zope - a new generation of software that we call a web application platform. Like web application servers, Zope provides very high performance and a strong framework for dynamic applications.

This QuickStart is built with Zope objects -- take a look!

Zope, though, is distinguished by its integrated object database which, when combined with a revolutionary object model, provides a completely unique facility for servicing content managers and web application developers. This outline, implemented in Zope, talks about the various strengths of the Zope platform and some of the other products available for it.

With Zope and Aqueduct, you can make stupid data "smart". Pluggable Brains turn flat records returned from Aqueduct Database Methods (SQL Queries) into intelligent objects. These objects benifit from all the Python and Zope object technologies, including inheritence and acquisition, and have full access to the large suite of modules available in Python and Zope.
