ArchGenXML is a well known and highly regarded tool for creating Archetypes-based content types for Plone. This talk brings to light issues with the underlying methodology behind the AGX tool chain, and presents a proven alternative methodology utilizing the ZopeSkel suite. The presenter will attempt to prove that this different approach is more efficient, less frustrating, and ultimately better for the overall emotional health of the developer. A portion of the talk will revolve around the creation of a relatively complex set of content types, complete with functional tests.
