Neal Sofge of RAND

In 2003, the Pittsburgh-based web development team for the RAND Corporation embarked on a 27-month project to modernize their online bookstore. To manage the 20,000+ pages of content involved, they selected the Perl-based open-source Bricolage system. Join former RAND Web Technology Manager Neal Sofge for an in-depth exploration of how Bricolage works, its strengths and weaknesses, and its performance in real-life enterprise-class usage.

Neal's slides are now posted on his .Mac account, which hopefully won't get clobbered by all the traffic from here...
