We’ve been quiet for some time for good reasons, and you’re right, we should’ve let you know what is going on. So here are our insights into the future.
You may have heard of the benefits of working on side projects, how those can turn into big companies, be a great way to experiment with an idea before committing to it, help you achieve multiple goals or even save your business. ZOOlanders started as a side project and once established as a company continued investing time on side projects of its own. One of those got traction and evolved into a what we proudly called Vuikit.
When we started ZOOlanders, four years ago, supporting a product was kind of scary and strange to us. We didn’t know what challenges were awaiting us, but we knew that support is important.
It's been a while since our last blog post, a lot has been developed, a lot has changed, but what didn't is our passion about ZOO and our products. It is about time to get you up to date about what is going on under the hood. Here we go.
This year Black Friday means a lot for us, the same way commerces celebrated it for crossing lines from red to black numbers in sales, we are now crossing lines wtihin ZOOcart and we want to celebrate it with all of you, so don't stop reading, there is a gift!
We've been working on it over a year and at last it's ready! Welcome the stable release of ZOOcart - an up-to-date extension that creates a functional eCommerce based on ZOO. ZOOcart integrates with any App and has amazing features right out of the box, i.e. a cart :)
If you have been actively following YOOtheme's blog, you should have noticed a great news for the entire ZOO community last week, the release of ZOO 3.2. This is a great announcement for everyone! A lot of ZOO followers and us as well have been requesting an update for ZOO lately, and the YOOtheme crew listened very carefully to it, releasing a great update that really enhance the power of our beloved CCK!
And of course, all of ZOOlanders extensions are already compatible with it!
The week is not over, there are still great news to announce. We are proud to say ZOOcart RC is ready!
Two weeks ago we have started a Sponsorship campaign for ZOOport, an advanced import/export solution for ZOO. It was our first attempt to get sponsored our Extensions by the community and we are thankful, proud and happy to say it was a huge success!
We are proud to announce the imminent release of ZOOlanders component!!
For those who missed it, we have been working during the last months on our own component to overpass the many limitations we were facing, such as:
If you have been following us you would know that we have a lot of going on lately, but many delays on releasing dates. That's because on each new product release we grow in quality, after more than 25 products behind us, the quality we expect has become big, and a priority.
For the 4rth time in a row, ZOOlanders went to the biggest Joomla Meeting in europe, JAndBeyond (#jab14) to meet a lot of amazing people that work in the Joomla Sphere. What an amazing experience! Every time we get blown away by the friendliness of the people, the passion of the community and the quality of the talks (and also by the average number of beers each attendee drinks every night :))
Last week we shared with you our plans for the future, and we got a huge response from eveyone. This has prompted us to show you something more of our plans for the future of ZOO, letting you see something on which we're working on for quite a bit, and that's finally getting into a shape that we can show to the public.
Meet a demo of our next big extension: ZOOadmin Pro!
We are excited to announce the project we have been working on and to share with you our vision. Be ready!
We are about to release ZOOlanders Component, a component that will completely transform your ZOO experience.
This new ZOOlanders Component will enhance ZOO in many different ways, currently does:
- Manage every ZOOlanders Extension from the same place
- New Uikit based interface, both admin and frontend
- Integrated Installation and Update Manager
We would like to share with you all that has happened in the last months and what's coming in the near future from the team here at zoolanders.com
