As we have progressed through the Internet age, the process for providing content and services on the web has primarily involved conventional page publishing by web developers, smithing HTML. During much of this time major content providers, primarily news outlets, used Content Management Systems to facilitate the creation, management, and publishing of content by the content creators themselves with no HTML needed. These systems, while powerful, were very expensive and complex to implement. The words Content Management System can mean many different things to different people. Plone is a realization of the Zope's CMF that provides a very powerful and flexible content management system out of the box.
Key features of Plone include a powerful tool for defining workflow, document level security management with roles, multiple content types, and multi lingual support. All of these features will be covered briefly, including all the myriad possibilities that occur through Zope, Python and CMF products. You should leave this presentation with both a basic understanding of what a CMF is, why it is useful, and especially why Plone could be a perfect match for your next project.
