zope-cookbook.org is an open book project that contains recipes and tutorials for Zope 3 developers. This book is written in several languages (French and English so far) and based on agile documentation principles. It uses Python doctests to provide participants the ability to write their recipes like they would write code, by using a test-driven approach. The code examples can therefore reach a high level of quality, since they are executed for real, and evolves with the framework in use. After a brief technical overview on how the project runs, and some extracts, the presentation will explain how a book project can be driven exactly like a software one, and why it is very important in such a dynamic and moving project like Zope 3. EuroPython would be a nice place to promote the project to the Zope and Python community, to get direct feedback and even maybe new writers!
