TriZPUG September 2003 Meeting: Adaptable Persistence Engine (APE)
We will be meeting in the DELTA conference room(s) at Venture III, who has kindly permitted us to use their meeting room, on NCSU's Centennial Campus. Directions to Venture III are below. This month, Zope Corp. is back in town, and they have volunteered to give this month's talk. Shane Hathaway will provide an overview of APE. Hope to see you there!
Title: Adaptable Persistence Engine (APE)
Shane Hathaway from Zope Corporation will provide an overview to Adaptable Persistence (aka APE), an object mapping framework. This talk should be of special interest not only to our Zopistas but also to those who have investigated using the standalone ZODB or who have a general interest in object persistence. While Ape is designed to work with ZODB, it can also work independently of both Zope and ZODB. From http://hathaway.freezope.org/Software/Ape, "Ape adapts Zope objects to storage on the filesystem, in relational databases, or practically anywhere else. It combines the advantages of transparent object persistence with arbitrary databases and formats."
Brian Lloyd (Zope Corporation's VP of Engineering) and Rob Page (CEO of Zope Corp) will also be on hand to answer questions.
