While there is much to be said for the convenience of being able to work with a single tool, oftentimes it is better to look at a best-of-breed approach to technology. Plone relies on open standards, which enable the “gluing together” of disparate platforms. Six Feet Up has successfully architected and deployed solutions that tie best-of-breed products together while keeping things simple to manage and analyze. In this talk, Six Feet Up CTO Calvin Hendryx-Parker will use recent deployments as examples to demonstrate the power of Plone combined with other tools, such as the Moin Moin wiki, Vanilla Forum, Open ID authentication, WordPress blog, Solr search engine, etc. Come and learn pro tips that will help you in your next integration project.
