We have posted the roadmap for the versions 0.9.3, 0.9.4, and 0.9.5
Please consider that the dates and the roadmap are subject to change, but this list should provide an overall snapshot of the project’s goals for those who are interested.
If you have any questions you please either post them here as a comment or ask us on Twitter ( @anahitapolis )
If you are interested in having early access to the code and learn about development using Anahita ™ from the core team and other partners you can become a partner
On July 7th 2009 we will be doing a presentation of Anahita Social Engine ™ at the 7th Vancouver DemoCamp. There will also be people from the BuddyPress project presenting their project in the same day. We are thrilled to be presenting in the same day with them since BuddyPress has been one of the projects that we have always admired.
A social website often needs to have a discussion board either as a stand alone social app or as a part of other social hubs such as Groups, Events, Organizations and such.
In the quest for finding a simple and organic design inspiration for developing a discussion board for the Anahita Social Engine I have been snooping around in different projects.
There are some existing forum extensions available for Joomla. In fact we did try ccBoard and realized that with some modifications to make it work with the Anahita Social Engine user profiles, it would work perfectly. So here is one good candidate.
We have also been using PHPBB3 for Tazzu Community and it seems like a complete forum out of the box and the UI is pretty good although I’ve found it to be a little too bulky for our purpose. We want something much more nimble and lighter. Besides, the user management in phpbb3 and the way it has been coded is not really our style so we’re not too sure about this one!
I must admit I have been fascinated with BBPress for quite some time. This is the discussion board app developed by the same folks who developed WordPress and these guys have a nice touch when it gets to getting the usability right.
Peter Russell interviews me about Anahita (a social engine framework for Joomla). At its core Anahita is powered by Nooku Framework.
My experience with Nooku Framework took Anahita to unexpected levels:
Thank you SO much peter and the Nooku team, you guys are amazing.
I wish my best friend and business partner Ash Sanieyan was there with me in the interview as well. He has been spending countless sleepless nights perfecting the Anahita Social Engine ™ technology and he could have provided many interesting inputs about the project from his perspective. Perhaps next time, he’ll get to play the solo on the stage!
We would like to inform you that we have launched a demo of Anahita Social ™ Engine for those of you who are interested to join our list partners, learn the framework and contribute some financial resources to the project in the same time.
Please feel free to contact us and book a meeting. We would be happy to answer your questions and create an account for you on the demo website before you make your decision to join our partners program.
