Last week, the Nooku Team was at the Dutch Joomladays, as both sponsors and speakers. There was a great turnout, the positive vibe and everybody was genuinely excited about the amazing innovations the Joomlasphere has come up with in the past year.
We have a tradition of showing something new each year at the Dutch Joomladays, so Johan and myself were very proud to officially announce our Developer Portal and present our very first State of Nooku.

This week, it’s exactly two years since we launched the Nooku.org website. We have been working behind the scenes for a long time, so it feels great to finally be able to show the world what we were doing. So it is with great pride that on Nooku’s second birthday, we’re announcing our brand new site.
Innovation through extensions
Let’s face it: there has been a lot of uncertainty in the Joomlasphere. Joomla 1.6 is the center of attention, but progresses slowly. Because of that, some people are considering to move away from Joomla.
We believe the naysayers are looking in the wrong direction. The Joomla core is just a piece of the puzzle. The community is driving innovation through amazing extensions. The Nooku platform is a game-changing technology that creates new momentum. Joomla Co-founder Peter Russell calls it
“The Nooku train: If you’re not on it, you’ll miss the destination!”
New website and resources
If you have been following closely, you may have noticed that Nooku HQ was buzzing with activity: earlier this month, we launched the new Nooku Developer Portal, invited you to the community maintained wiki, and opened the Nooku Framework mailing list to the public. The new Nooku.org main site has a better structure to help you find your way through our resources, and makes a clear distinction between Nooku Content (the multi-lingual extension) and Nooku Framework, the new brain for Joomla.
In the past 5 years, I have pursued my vision to champion a diverse, open, multi-lingual and multi-cultural web, with Joomla at the heart. Two years ago, when Mathias joined me, we came at a crossroad. The only way was forward. With the help of our partners and now also with our growing community of developers, we built Nooku.
It’s has been an incredible exciting and rewarding experience. We’ve listened, we’ve coded, and we’ve grown. Joomla 1.5′s main goal was to make a more extensible and modular framework. With Nooku we are taking Joomla to a next level, adding real architecture, and rapid development power. We believe our Nooku Framework can further inspire collaboration among developers, integrators and end-users.
That’s why I’m very excited to announce today our new Nooku Developer Portal.
