Zope and Plone courses
These two five-day courses give a comprehensive overview of Zope and Plone, to get prospective developers up to speed.
We wanted to have a course that introduced people to Zope and Plone for the first time, and took them all the way to how things work under the hood. As such, we start with basics, defining our terms as we go along, and end up quite technical.
The courses don't presume a lot of background, and are suitable for a wide range of audiences --- as long as they're willing to work hard :)
While writing, we chewed through masses of HowTos, READMEs, books and manuals available online. Therefore it's only right that we license these courses under an Open Source license. We've chosen the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.0 license, because we like the work that the Creative Commons guys are doing to widen the acceptance of Open Source licenses.

Note: We haven't received enough interest in local courses to justify keeping them up to date with the latest Zope and Plone releases. The courses are still useful for background, but don't be surprised if the screenshots don't reflect a new install or if properties have moved around.
If there's interest (well, actually, if there's funding), we'd love to bring them up to date!
