This week we sit down with 2 great developers within the Joomla Community, Jeremy Wilken and Joe LeBlanc. Both have been part of the Joomla Community for many years, and they have come together to collaborate on a new Joomla Distribution they call Square One CMS. Think of it as the latest Joomla build on a diet. No extensions ship with Square One except the User Manager, ACL and Article component. However, all of the Joomla default extensions are readily available in the Extensions manager and can be added with one click of the mouse.
The idea behind Square One, is to give site builders and developers a clean slate to build out your own distro of Joomla that you can deploy over and over again. Think of it as a Distribution you can use to build Distributions!
Listen in while we discuss how Square One came about, and where these guys plan on taking it in the future.
JoomStew Radio had the opportunity to sit down this week with one of the Lead Developers of the Joomla! project, Andrew Eddie. It's always a great pleasure to speak with Andrew, and today's show was no different.
Joomla will be releasing Joomla 1.7 in the next 30 days, and we got a chance to talk to Andrew about the new release, the changes in the Development Release Cycle, the Framework Separation, Ebay and Microsoft involvement in the Joomla Project and his thoughts on Forks based on Joomla code.
I'd like to take a minute to give special thanks to my co-hosts Dianne Henning and Alice Grevet for all they do to keep this place going. Without them, we wouldn't have a show and I'd be off doing something else by now. Thanks Ladies.
As always, thanks to Andrew for taking the time to share his thoughts with us, it's never a boring show when we get a chance to speak with you.
Now check out the latest JoomStew Radio show below!
Today, JoomStew Radio is proud to have several members from the Molajo team as our guests. They explain what Molajo is (and isn't), who's behind it, and who the target market is. This is a show for everyone, from site builders to developers. A lively discussion covering all things Molajo ensued.... templates for Molajo, core extensions, Joomla! extensions, the extension builder, and how to get involved with Molajo.
Amy Stephen sums it by saying, "The Molajo project is just the start of what we will see with developers collaborating using the Joomla! Framework. We really appreciate this opportunity to share with the Joomla! Community what we are working on, and why, and how to get involved when the time comes. Thanks to Robert, Dianne, and Alice for having us on the show. Go Joomla!"!
