Discovering Bricolage, by David Wheeler

Content management is a huge issue for organizations of all sizes,
addressed by products ranging from simple in-house solutions to
multi-million dollar commercial applications. Bricolage, an
enterprise-class open source content management system powered by
Apache/mod_perl and PostgreSQL, aims to bridge the gap between these
extremes by offering an intuitive interface with powerful capabilities. As
a result, Bricolage has gained wide adoption from organizations as diverse
as Entertainment Tonight Online, The RAND Corporation, and the World
Health Organization. Its power and ease of use led to its being named
"Most Impressive" of 2002 by eWeek.

Join Bricolage lead developer and maintainer David Wheeler for a practical
introduction to Bricolage. As an open source product with commercial-class
features such as document type definition, granular access control,
flexible templating, and platform-independent content distribution,
Bricolage enables a deep and comprehensive organizational content
management workflow. Following a brief review of its history, we'll focus
on the essentials needed to start using Bricolage. The topics covered

    * Analysis and logical modeling of document types in an organization
    * Mason template development
    * Document editing
    * Replicating and managing organizational workflow
    * Publishing and distribution
