Review: Rapid Web Applications with TurboGears

  •; By James Pyles (Posted by tripwire45 on Nov 15, 2006 9:30 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: PHP

One of the reviews in the front of this book states in part: "Dear PHP, It's over between us. You can keep the kitchen sink, but I want my MVC..."

It's sad to see a relationship break up but apparently something better came along. While I've already been sold on Python, I wanted to know how TurboGears stacked up as a Python framework and how well the Ramm/Dangoor/Sayfan book presents it. Since Kevin Dangoor created TurboGears, I imagined that "Rapid Web Applications with TurboGears" wouldn't lack for technical accuracy (of course, you never know) but would it really help me to "...get productive with TurboGears - fast"? Let's find out.

Who Else Gains from a GPL'd Java?

Sun'sannouncement that it would be releasing Java under the GNU GPL confounded many of its critics (including myself) who had feared that the company was incapable of making such a bold move.  Quite rightly, it has garnered praise from across the hacker world.  But Sun's relationship with free software has not always been so idyllic.
