First look at Plone

Spent the day checking out Plone. It is a Python based Content Management System. It looks like a very powerful and interesting system for build portals and other web applications. What I particularly like is the ability to mix structured data with unstructured content using a very elegant, unified object-based model. Most other Content Management Systems are weak when it comes to structured data support – it appears Plone has a much stronger model.

I’m going to be trying a couple of applications using Plone and will report over the next few weeks as I make progress on how it all works out. The Plone site has some really cool video demonstrations – be sure to check them out.
