Using Zope3 Views and Viewlets for Plone 3.0 Product Development

A hands-on workshop on how to use Zope3 Views and Viewlets in Products targeted for Plone 3.0 (and why you would want to do so). Special emphasis will be on best practices in general, handling and validation of forms and how Zope3's shiny new toys make it easier to write reusable code and cleaner markup. Finally, the talk will deal with how Views and Viewlets can help you make your product better cacheable. Although the talk is targeted at Plone integrators who already have experience using the older CMF-based approach it will also try to address people new to Plone who want to customize it in a future-proof manner.
