"Kaivo became interested in offering Zope courses because of the increasing demand for the Open Source application server, Gosa says. 'The rapid growth of the Zope community has definitely resulted in a sharp increase in demand for training and education, and we believe this is a trend which will continue,' she adds. 'We've scheduled more Zope classes for this year, and currently are planning expanded course offerings for 2001.'"

"Kaivo ascribes Zope's rising popularity to increased acceptance of Open Source software and development as a whole. 'Speaking generally, we've found that the increasing acceptance of Linux has spearheaded a more general acceptance of Open Source tools among business technology professionals,' Gosa says. 'Specifically, over the last year, Zope has emerged as one of the premier Open Source platforms for Web application development and content management.'"

"Gosa explains Kaivo's interest in Zope. 'At Kaivo, we have a long history of support for open standards and we're always on the lookout (not just by inclination, but according to our corporate mission) for the best non-proprietary technologies to bring to bear upon the problems facing business customers. Zope is clearly at the top of the heap right now,' Gosa explained. 'So, couple the increased demand in Zope with the rising acceptance of Open Source and our own bias toward non-proprietary tools and you have a pretty clear picture of why we think the time is right to be helping speed the adoption of this technology.'"
