ZDNet ranks Joomla! first for online communities
Ten leading platforms for creating online communities
Dion Hinchcliffe declared Joomla! the number 1 platform for creating online communities in his ZDNet article Ten leading platforms for creating online communities.
Thanks for noticing, Dion! With Joomla! 1.5, developers have an object-oriented, pattern based API that follows best practices. The new MVC based component objects gives developers a platform for rapid application development and prototyping. Dion is absolutely right - Joomla! 1.5 is more than capable of empowering online communities.
Following Joomla! in this top 10 list is Drupal, PHP-Nuke, Zikula (formerly PostNuke), and Microsoft's Sharepoint. The next five include Dot Net Nuke, Community Server, KickApps, and ClearSpace Community.
