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!
Frameworks and Forks and Distros,
Johan Janssens is a pillar of the Joomla! community, and is best known for his work as the lead developer for Joomla 1.5 and now Nooku Framework. Johan joined JoomStew Radio to talk about his experience with the Joomla! project in the past, the Nooku Framework team and its plans for the future, and shared his thoughts about the current Joomla Development environment.
Johan has a very good understanding of Free and Open Source Software principles, and shares his insights on how a GPL powered software community can grow and prosper.
We're greatful Johan took the time to share his ideas with us, and we would love to hear your thoughts on these topics in the comments below!
