Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Article on ACS x Zope
Is there something else specific I am supposed to be defending? OO? Dude, the *name of the product* is the Zope *Object* Publishing Environment. It'd be a little tough for me (assuming I like our product) to not defend an OO approach to web development with a name like that.
Is there anything else I should be defending? My skills? Perhaps my co-workers' skills? The paucity of my social interactions? My handwaving? (BTW, Your suspicions about Zope being overengineered and over-complex are curious, as you've never used it, but I trust you've heard it from "smart people" on "good faith" and they're grounded in solid reason.)
This exchange is becoming pointless, but its been a lot of fun so far. I have a strong conviction that we need more guys like you working for/on competing companies and projects.
