Tarek’s new thing
That would be Zenoss. I’m very impressed with the application as well as the community, which is awesome. They remind me a lot of the Plone community; I think the two can learn a lot from each other.
Generally speaking, I’m happy with my progress as a Plone integrator, plowing through the tremendous Plone code stack, on my way to complete mastery. I may never get there, but I’m having fun trying. In other words, I know a lot more about how far the Zope2/CMF/Five rabbit hole goes. If I had to pick, I’d choose Grok in Plone, mostly as it relates to Dexterity: http://plone.org/products/dexterity/documentation/manual/five.grok. I created http://plone.org/products/collective-project as a result, or rather, I converted the package to use Dexterity types so I could learn Dexterity, in part ;-). At first I was angry at being “forced” to use Grok techniques in Plone, but then it grew on me.
