In this episode, Sean Kelly at NASA compares j2ee, rails, zope/plone, turbogears, django… cue the laughtrack
Okay, this is a long one, but it rivals any comparison matrix:
Plone comes out shining, although arguably it compares apples to pomellas. Someone with the chops should really cut this baby up into chapters, cause its a win for dynamic languages over j2ee, and python, and Plone to boot. (spoiler: he uses the zmi for “hello world” and ArchGenXML for the time tracking app).
I could also connect this presentation to ideas in Johnny Can’t Program (cited in a recent interview with Behlendorf) and “where have all the zmi developers” gone, but I’ll save that for another post.
