The beginning of 2011 introduced three new faces in the Joomlatools scene – Israel Canasa, Ercan Ozkaya and Myra Jill Siason. Three vibrant, young, passionate experts in their own fields who have joined our team since February to bring you the next big thing: DOCman 2.0!
Israel and Ercan are taking charge of the DOCman 2.0 development while Myra is making sure sure that the team is running smoothly. Together with our Joomlatools regulars, we tripled our team size to bring you the best document manager for Joomla ever!
DOCman 2.0 is completely being re-written from scratch and built on-top of the Nooku Framework. It will work on both Joomla 1.5 & Joomla 1.6.
Distributed across Europe, Asia and Australia
One unique feature of the team is the distributed nature of its members. The whole team is spread out across three continents – Europe, Asia & Australia. This has not become a hindrance but rather an asset, talent knows no boundaries.
Managing a distributed team is not easy, but all together we make it work. Essential to the process is proper and efficient use of online collaboration tools. For the project workspace, we use Assembla. Over the past 2 months we have been working on DOCman 2.0 in iterations of two weeks. We have taken Agile development strategies, tailor fitted them to the Joomlatools philosophy and have made them our own.

Along with our revamped Nooku.org site, we also opened the new Nooku Blog. This way we can keep things nicely separated. So if you want to stay up to date with both DOCman and Nooku, subscribe to both http://feeds.nooku.org/blog and http://feeds.joomlatools.eu/site/blog.
You’ll amaze your friends and enemies with your knowledge of Joomla, and you’ll read about our ideas and thoughts for the Joomlasphere. And if you think we’re wrong, feel free to tell us so in the comments!
Over the past 3 years Joomlatools has gone from strength to strength. Founded by Joomla Co-founder Johan Janssens and DOCman Lead Developer Mathias Verraes we soon grew with the addition of two more Joomla Co-Founders Peter Russell and Shayne Bartlett.
We now find ourselves expanding yet again, so it is with great pleasure that we announce two fantastic additions to the Joomlatools team.
Tom Janssens (yes… he’s Johan’s little brother) joins us as a Webmaster/Designer. Tom holds a Bachelors Degree in Information and Communications Technology. Tom is one of those talented people that can both code and design. For more on Tom visit his bio
Krisstoffer is already well known to DOCman users with his volunteer work in the DOCman forums over the past few years. With DOCman’s move to commercial GPL, Kriss has come on the team to continue this role with the position of Support Engineer. For more on Kriss visit his full bio
Finally we would like to thank our users and partners for their continued support, without it we would not be growing. We are committing ourselves to you and ensuring you receive the best solutions and support possible.
