I just got the europython 2006 program and my talk is in: Generating content types and workflow with ArchGenXML , hurray! Monday morning, right before lunch, which is a good spot as far as I'm concerned.
For many people, ArchGenXML is the most attractive way to get started with Plone
development. Generating your content types from a UML class diagram is easy and fast,
especially as ArchGenXML sets up all the "bookkeeping code" for you: the
Install.py, etc. The presentation will cover this and I'll also show how to
modify the generated code to your special needs.
ArchGenXML is great at generating a complete workflow out of UML state diagrams. You get good code that hardly ever needs modification from a UML diagram that you can readily show to your customer - and he'll be able to understand it (mostly). I'll show how to do this in the presentation.
Depending on the improvements made on ArchGenXML I hope to show our support for zope3 goodies in plone 2.5.
Oh, and allow me a brief recommendation of eXtremeManagement of projects with Plone that my brother Maurits gives on monday right after lunch :-)
I have given a talk on AGX twice in the past few months. I have a presentation at: http://www.7technw.com/resources/presentations/
Feel free to use any of it that seems useful. If you would like the origional presentation from OpenOffice let me know and I'll email it.
