Mark Echeverri, who has years of experience in traditional software and systems engineering, says: "For the past couple of months, I've been working with Plone. It's an impressive system, and not exactly something you pick up in a Saturday. Previously, I had never done any Web-related development; Plone is a Zope tool that allows you to juggle Web portals like bowling pins...provided you know how to take advantage of it. Quite powerful."

About Zope and Plone:

"Zope is an open source application server for building content management systems, intranets, portals, and custom applications....Zope is written in Python, a highly-productive, object-oriented scripting language."
