ArchGenXML introductory talk at europythonΒΆ

Tags: europython, europython2006, plone, archgenxml

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, the, 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 :-)
