Zope Component Architecture Chat with Jim Fulton

As some of you know, over the past few months some folks within Zope Corp. have been working on a new Zope component architecture.

The new component architecture seeks to make developing for Zope easier by clarifying and simplifying the task of extending Zope.

Enough of the preliminary thinking on the new architecture has now been written down to start sharing those ideas and soliciting the input of the community. You can find the materials for this project at:

Specifically, the following pages of the project wiki are key to understanding what is being contemplated:

  • VisionStatement
  • ComponentArchitectureApproach
  • ComponentArchitectureOverview
  • Glossary

We are very excited about the possibilities of this approach, but to consider changing Zope development in such a fundamental way we absolutely need meaningful feedback and input from the Zope developer community on this. If you are a Zope developer, please check out the project above and let us know what you think.

Additionally, Jim Fulton will be hosting an IRC chat on Friday, August 3rd at 12:00pm EST on the #zope channel of to answer your questions on the proposed component architecture (please be sure to have read the above pages first!). We hope to see many of you there!
