Eric Idle Room

Talk details

Language: English
Level: Intermediate

The plone.api is an elegant and simple API, built for humans wishing to develop with Plone. It comes with cookbook-like documentation with step-by-step instructions for doing common development tasks in Plone. Recipes try to assume the user does not have extensive knowledge about Plone internals. The talk will be about the philosophy and rationale behind it, what it offers and how to use it.

Since recently plone.api's code conventions and style guide have been adopted by the Framework Team as the Plone Core conventions. We'll go through these recommendations and discuss why they are there and why you should start using them in your own code also.

Finally, we'll walk through some bits and pieces of plone.api's internal code, to give you the idea of how modern Plone code should be organized and formatted, as an example of coding conventions mentioned above.
