You presume way too much about our Zope experience.
I have used Python extensively for the last 5 years, to the point of
considering myself a Python "expert". I am writing a Python book that I
expect to have published this year.
Yet I have never done anything with Zope. I am curious to learn more about
what Zope can do for me, and maybe get on the bandwagon myself. I would
love an introduction to Zope in a small group setting, where I could ask
questions in real time.
I would also be interested in round-table discussions on the topics you
mentioned, both to listen and to contribute.
