Welcome to the Zope Tutorial

This tutorial shows you the basics of using Zope. You will learn how to create and manage Zope resources by building a web site devoted to tracking Elvis sightings. Each lesson includes working examples that allow you to learn by hands-on experimentation.

The tutorial assumes that you are familiar with basic Internet technologies such as HTML, URLs, and web browsers.

The "Back" and "Next" buttons on the bottom of each tutorial page allow you to navigate the tutorial.

If you get lost you can use your browser's back button to return to an earlier lesson.

If you want to quit the tutorial close your browser window. You can return to the tutorial later by visiting the tutorial object you created in the Zope management screen, and viewing its "README" document.
