Packt has this week announced a series of giveaways and promotions to herald the publication of two new Plone books; Plone 3 Multimedia and Plone 3 Products Development Cookbook. Readers will be offered exclusive discounts, 20% and 30% off the cover price of all Plone print books and Plone eBooks, respectively, for a limited period only.
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. It is also well positioned to be used as a document publishing system and groupware collaboration tool. The strengths of Plone are its adaptable workflow, good security, extensibility, high usability and flexibility.
While the new Plone 3 Multimedia book, written by Tom Gross, helps users embed, display, and manage multimedia content, the new Plone 3 Products Development Cookbook, by Juan Pablo Giménez and Marcos F. Romero, helps developers to create feature rich, modern Plone add-on products.
“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.
