Useful References for Plone and Zope

  • The Definitive Guide to Plone – The complete book online. Great resource for Plone. Essentially the “Plone Bible”. Mike Takahashi August 19, 2005
  • The Book of Zope – a good book to help get you familiar with Zope. It’s a little out dated (ignore the DTML references). However, it really goes into depth on the inner workings of Zope (acquisition, ZCatalog, roles, permissions, etc.) and is something everyone should learn if you plan to customize and develop your Plone site.
  • Online, the The Zope Book
    is a nice free resource. A little outdated, but the same principles still apply. Ignore the DTML sections as any customizations you do with Zope/Plone should be with TAL/Python. This section is a must for learning TAL (quoted with permission from Mike Takashi email Feb. 6, 2007)
