Please join us November 9, 7:30-9:00 PM, for the sixth meeting of the Fredericksburg, VA Zope and Python User Group ("ZPUG"). Squid and Zope! Using Zope for newspaper publishing! The dangers of object oriented inheritance! Free food!

* Andrew Sawyers will discuss using the open source cache server Squid with Zope, including a discussion of the O'Reilly book about Squid.

* Allen Schmidt, Sr. Programmer for - the website for the Free Lance-Star - will present on "Using Zope for Newspaper Publishing".

* Jim Fulton, CTO of Zope Corporation, will present an abbreviated version of the argument given in Clemens Szyperski's Component Software for why both inheritance and delegation (e.g. acquisition) cause tight coupling and therefore should be avoided except in special circumstances.

    * We will serve delicious fruit, cheese, and soft drinks.

We've had a nice group for all the meetings. Please come and bring friends!

We also are now members of the O'Reilly and Apress user group programs, which gives us nice book discounts (prices better than Amazon's, for instance) and the possibility of free review copies. Ask me about details at the meeting if you are interested.
