hasta la pork knuckle baby!

The sprint is over. and after a canceled flight and a night in Zurich, I'm back home to Nashville.

There is still alot to be done with explaining how the Zope 3 story fits with Plone's story, as well as many coding projects to get finished. But I learned alot and took part in alot of healthy discussions.

At sprint we saw the fufillment of the promise of Goldegg as a zeitgeist for development; you couldn't turn around without someone mentioning adapter patterns, interfaces, views or namespaces. This translated into some of the best thought out and carefully tested code I've seen come out of a snow sprint.

On the Plone front, I am very positive about the future. It's just a matter of getting concerns separated out into the proper places. Zope 3 doesn't need to be the boogy man of the future present.

Everyone needs to remember this is not a Zope 2 vs. Zope 3 platform advocacy argument. We should not be "switching" anything drastically, except for possibly some old slow zope2-centric ways of developing for some faster more python-centric ones.

To paraphrase James Carville: It's about the python stupid. and writing python in a way that makes the most sense. Finally, we have some tools to do this with. They happened to be named Zope 3 and Five.

On the home front, despite all the meat and cheese, plone-jobs, flying heirscht, and time zone changes, I feel rested and ready to go.

A good sprint is like hitting reset and starting with fresh batteries.

So, in closing, a big thanks to Jodok and the rest of the lovelies for making this happen once again and until next year, auf wiedersehen!
