JoomStew Radio had a chance to sit down this week with the co-admins for Joomla's Google Summer of Code, Chad Windnagle and Andy Tarr. This is a great opportunity to educate young people and give back to the Open Source community at the same time. It also helps to bring new folks into the Joomla project.

This week JoomStew Radio sat down with Johan and Tom Janssens to discuss the upcoming Nooku Server release, a Joomla! 1.5 distribution. It's always a good show when Johan stops by, but this week's show has a lot of great information on what we can expect in the upcoming Alpha 3 version of Nooku Server.
Tom is the lead UI/UX Designer for the Nooku Server release and with the help of the Nooku developer community has implemented a truckload of updates to the Administrator area that will make our lives easier. There's also a lengthy discussion in the last half hour of the show on the topic of ACL that you will certainly want to listen to as well.
This was by far the longest show we've done to date, but we just couldn't bring ourselves to split it up into 2 shows. So get ready for an hour and half long podcast!
Thanks again to Tom and Johan for taking the time to sit down with us to discuss Nooku Server, we learned so much, and hope our listeners do as well!
Today JoomStew welcomes two very special guests, Joe Palmer of SoftForge and Parth Lawate of TechJoomla, to talk about Joomla! community extensions, namely Community Builder and JomSocial. Listen to their stories of what these extensions can do, and learn some clever new ways to use them. Plus don't miss the surprise appearance from a special globe-trotting guest at the end. Joomla! is all about community, and this show is all about community extensions!

The JoomStew radio extensions series continues with a show about online communities. For our October 6 podcast, JoomStew will interview two community extension power users: Joe Palmer will talk about how he uses Community Builder, and Parth Lawate will share his JomSocial secrets.
Build it and they will come...
If only it were that easy. Constructing an online community to meet the needs of your group and draw people in is a complicated matter. Thanks to Joomla community extensions like Community Builder and JomSocial, much of the work has been done for us. Tune in to learn what these extensions can do!
For this special episode of JoomStew Radio we decided to have a little fun in our JoomStew show notes around a serious subject. Perhaps no section of joomla.org draws in more people than the JED (Joomla! Extensions Directory).
The JED has been in the news a lot lately and our JEDI knight guests joined us to shed some light on the issues. In the roles of JEDI masters we welcome Paul Orwig and Matt Lipscomb, both CLT members (Joomla! Community Leadership Team) and co-leaders of the JED team. David Deutsch, of valanx.org, joins us as in the role of dashing and articulate developer.
