This week I have an in depth analysis of content construction kits for Joomla that allow you to extend the basic content publishing system and allows you to publish all sorts of different content types using the Joomla CMS.
In the podcast I talk about K2, SobiPro, FlexiContent, Seblod and Zoo content construction kits and try and break them down to make them easier to understand and choose for your next Joomla project.
If you haven't used a content construction kit before or don't know what one is, then this podcast will take you through some of the more popular CCKs out there and help you understand the concepts behind them.
I'm putting forth, "Joomla Installatron and Joomla InstallaBot" :)
