The 17th of April 2012 marked the end of the state-of-the-art content translation tool for Joomla. The Nooku team is officially announcing the sunset of Nooku Content.
With the end of life of Joomla 1.5 coming up at the end of the month and the integrated multilingual capabilities that are now available in Joomla 2.5, we feel there is no longer a need for a separate multilingual solution for Joomla.
With the sunset of Nooku Content, we are putting all our focus on growing Nooku as a free and open source web application platform.
As Nooku starts its 5th year, we will slowly leave our Joomla roots behind and wander off into the wider PHP galaxy. Exciting times!
But first, the tool that speaks your language is bidding adieu and we thank all our partners who helped us build Nooku Content.
On Wednesday, 19 January 2011, Joomla integrators and PHP developers gathered at the University of Lugano, CH for the first Swiss Nooku Jam. The Jam took place during the annual Beyounic Camp, a strategic workshop hosted by our friends from Beyounic.
Beyounic is the team behind Ohanah, a social event management platform built on Nooku Framework. They have become great friends in the past year and we (Tom and myself) were very excited to travel to Lugano to see their new office and organize a Nooku Jam together.
Geeks, students and teachers
Despite the exam period, we got a room full of interested informatics students, teachers and many other great people coming also from abroad. (@andreatorre came over all the way from Rome, Italy @luscarpa joined us from Venice, Italy)
With so many really talented people in the room, we were able to touch some very technical topics. Design patterns, use of web 3.0/semantic technologies, security, etc. Feedback during and after the event was great. The Jam was well appreciated by the faculty program manager and the participants.
First Nooku Developer Group
The afternoon after the event, a group of students got really interested in learning more about the Nooku Framework. For us this means the first seed for a swiss Nooku developer group has been successfully planted!

We’re proud to announce BEDRE reklame as a new Nooku Partner. BEDRE reklame have been at the forefront of Joomla development in Norway since Joomla was born, so we are very excited when they chose to Partner with us.
Although the Partnership originally focused on Nooku Content, it was the underlying Nooku Framework that really opened BEDRE reklame’s eyes.
According to Torkil Johnsen, “The Nooku Framework has so far proven to be both a time and lifesaver. Thanks to this technology, we are able to produce more secure and robust code in a shorter amount of time, when creating Joomla extensions”.
As our first Norwegian partner, BEDRE reklame is now enjoying the benefits of Joomla’s only enterprise grade translation system as well as the RAD framework that made it possible. Definitely a win win for BEDRE reklame.
We would like to thank BEDRE reklame for their support, and look forward to many years of mutually beneficial development on Nooku Content and Nooku Framework.
