I liked Mark Pilgrim's _Dive into Python_.

Yes? Yes, but only if you could make sure that your package or module was imported during Zope 3 startup. Grok uses a similar scheme, as far as I understand: you declare your adapters and utilites in Python code, and then a single ZCML directive in the grok: namespace loads your package and registers everything. Does Grok have a website? Google doesn't give me anything more useful than these blog posts: http://faassen.n--tree.net/blog/view/weblog/2006/11/09/0 http://faassen.n--tree.net/blog/view/weblog/2007/01/09/0 http://www.z3lab.org/sections/blogs/philipp-weitershausen/2007_01_09_you-thought-zope-3-wasn Marius Gedminas -- The laser etcher can accept most any image data, (think logos or screen dumps!) and render it on a heat-sensitive surface.
