Plone is a free open source content management system built on top of the Zope application server. It can be used for any kind of website, including blogs, internet sites, webshops and internal websites.

The strengths of Plone are its adaptable workflow, good security, extensibility, high usability and flexibility.

“Plone was one of the first topics Packt published on, and it is great to see the Plone project’s loyal community maintaining Plone as one of the most popular systems around. The set of Plone books we’ve just released shows our continued commitment to Plone, and this will continue into the next version of Plone and onward”, said Packt Open Source publisher Doug Paterson.
