The 3rd Annual International Joomla Conference, J and Beyond, took place on May 18-20, 2012 in Bad Nauheim, Germany at the Dolce Hotel and Resort. JoomStew Radio was lucky enough to have Dianne Henning and Sandy Ordonez there to record some of the Joomla Rock Stars in attendance, and today is the start of the infamous JabStew 2012 Series.

In our first episode, we've got the event organizers Robert Deutz and Brian Teeman talking about how J and Beyond originally came together, along with OSM President Paul Orwig sharing his thoughts on the event. We also hear from several other guests at the table, including Chad Windnagle, who shares the progress of this year's Joomla Google Summer of Code.


JoomStew Radio – Introducing Square One CMS

Square 1 CMS

Square 1 CMS - Light Joomla Distribution

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.
