How should you actually _build_ your site, though? This tutorial teaches about different parts of the development toolchain, including: * keeping as much of your code as possible on the filesystem, and under version control. * allowing several developers to work together, without stepping on toes. * setting up a Zope server for most effective development. * using the Zope debugger, both directly, and with debugging GUIs such as WingIDE and Boa Constructor. * using 'Site Products' to hold the skins and logic for your site in one place. * using portal setups and customizations to make recreation and tracking of your site easiest. * techniques for developing on a laptop or workstation and synchronizing with a server. * choosing conventions for your project and your team.
