Radio Liferay Episode 8: Brian Chan

Company Blogs November 4, 2011 By Olaf Kock Staff

Liferay for your ears: Episode 8 is a premiere in this program: Brian Chan, Liferay's founder and Chief Software Architect, is the first that I didn't record in a conversation: Instead this is a recording from Brian's closing keynote at the European Symposium. I had originally planned to record an episode with Brian, but during this keynote he already answered 80% of what I had on my list - and added another 80% that I did not have on my list. So for now I settled with the keynote, well worth listening to

podcast-logo The introduction is done by Bryan Cheung, another member of Liferay's founding team and the Chief Executive Officer. As this is the full keynote, I really recommend to listen to it in full, and for that reason don't provide a bullet point list of the topics here. Just this: You'll learn a lot about the setup of the company, the vision, the reason why you want to work with Liferay - the product as well as the company. And why the company will stay with this vision for the foreseeable future. And where the name "Liferay" comes from. And so many more things - Brian is a fast speaker.

One of the next episodes will be a follow-up to this episode, as I used the opportunity to sit down with 3/4 of the founder's team, namely all the Brians (This poses a spelling problem: What's the plural of "Brian, Brian and Bryan"? I'll make it "The Brians")

You'll find this episode - and make sure that you don't miss any of the future episodes - by subscribing to  http://feeds.feedburner.com/RadioLiferay with your favourite podcatcher. You can also subscribe on itunes.: Just search for "Radio Liferay" or just "Liferay" in the podcast directory.

You can find Brian, me and (new) the announcements for Radio Liferay on twitter and on many more places on the web.

I completely approve of radio liferay. Audio is vastly underused on the web, something I have been banging on about for years.

I used to produce and record radio programmes for several main stream radio stations and for companies as well as being an anchor from time to time. If you need any help, shout.
