Calvin Hendryx-Parker from SixFeetUp
gave an interesting talk at the Plone Conference
, advising strongly to only use Plone for its strengths, and not try to make it do what it's not optimized to do.
Plone does a tremendous number of things extremely well, but not everything. So at what point does it make sense to integrate a 3rd party application? Reinout van Rees blogged
about the presentation. The bottom line: "Our time is valuable. Why waste it by trying to hammer a square peg in a round hole? Pick the right tools for the right job and let Plone do the things it is good at."
