It happened in September, and it is going to happen again next month – the Nooku flag is up in two continents in November! Nooku finds its way back to Asia and is going back to its roots in Belgium! Presenting the second Nooku Jam Manila and the first Nooku Jam Leuven.
Manila – Philippines
Following a very successful Nooku Jam Manila in 2010, Johan is back to give developers another whirlwind experience with the Nooku Framework. Israel and Myra, Timble’s Manila team, will also be around to help facilitate the event.
Nooku Jam Manila will be held on Friday, November 4, 2011 at the Exist TechBar in Ortigas, Metro Manila. If you are a passionate Joomla/PHP developer, join us for a day of technology, hacking and fun. And the hard work will pay off at the after party at the end of the day to start the celebrations for a great Nooku year.
The techbar can only hosts 20 developers. We expect to sell out quick so make sure to register early!
Leuven – Belgium
With the Nooku headquarters just a few miles away, the Nooku Jam almost comes home on the 26-27th of November in Leuven, Belgium. Our friends from FlandersDC will host the Jam in their uber awesome Creativity Lab which will be opened for us specially during the weekend.
Except not one day, but a full weekend of intense presentations, discussions, brainstorms, workshops, hackathons, … around specific areas of the Nooku project. And offcourse in good Nooku tradition there will be a Nooku Party!
This Jam is a great opportunity for Nookuers to meet in person, to put a face on a lot of quirky mailing list and IM nicknames, and to spend some quality time together!
The Nooku Jam is organised together with community partners (Timble, MoyoWeb, Pincoding, Beyounic, FlandersDC). We are still looking for companies to help sponsor the event. Interested? Get in touch.
If you are a Nooku, Joomla or PHP developer this is a Jam not to miss ! The Creativity Lab of FlandersDC can host a maximum of 50 people. Don’t wait to register!
J and Beyond 2011 is just around the corner. Nooku will take part in the biggest international Joomla event of the year. We are kicking it off with an awesome pre-event Nooku party! The 5th of May will definitely be a night to remember. Registrations for dinner are closed but feel free to come and join us at the bar for some drinks or hit the slopes.
The JAB11 programme has been Nooku-fied with four presentations from Johan, Stian, Tom, Gergo and Ercan.
On the 1st of October, the European leg of the Nooku team assembled at Nooku HQ in Diest, Belgium to have a week of fun and coding.
We wisely planned the first day as a general “assemble the team” day – the perils of international travel soon proved this to be a good idea with me running late getting over two borders into Belgium by car and Stian experiencing some flight rescheduling.
Our favorite thing – coding
Being a gathering of developers, the fun really started the next day when we all got to return to our favorite thing – coding. Everybody had a good stack of tickets to work down and after some basic coordination, we got cracking. This is how most of the days went, coding until we recalled that at some point you might want to grab some lunch, delayed that for a couple of hours, eventually getting some quick food, returning to work for a another set of hours, closing off with a nice dinner and falling into bed around midnight.
