Welcome to Radio Liferay, a peek into what is going on in Liferay from the people doing it themselves.
Radio Liferay Episode 60: Performance and Permissions with Preston Crary
An episode on the "Per" things: Performance and Permissions. I spoke to Preston Crary, who amazingly was not mad at me for losing an earlier recording.
- We open with the attention to detail that's required for working on performance tuning and some short conversation about this topic.
- Sadly, there's not often a single silver bullet, but many areas of dust.
- Sometimes the fastest code is not the most optimal
- Continuing with Preston's work on Permissions:
- ResourceBlock is deprecated, and there's an easy migration path
- an example upgrade path for bookmarks
- The usecase for Resources, ResourcePermission, and ResourceBlocks (as they're not at all visible on the UI)
- Preston's way through Liferay from Support to working on the topics that he's now working on
- The new API for Permissions - and the documentation is also done already (as of me writing this article, not yet published, but available on github - should be a matter of days or hours)
- Should you implement your own permission system? (and how the answer to this question might change in 7.1)
- Upgrades are being performance tuned. I smell a future episode coming up. Paging the team that is working on this area
- The remarkable memory savings that refactoring the UserBag introduced
- What happend during login
- Passwords are PBKDF2WithHmacSHA1/160/128000 hashed, a deliberately expensive password hashing algorithm.
- LPS-75747 and an update to my hardball question: Document Library's default.xml is still in core, can't be updated through a module, just through an ext.

Radio Liferay Episode 25: Eduardo Lundgren and Zeno Rocha (AlloyUI)
As a preview for AlloyUI was just released (together with the new website) I took the opportunity to have another episode about the UI layer. Luckily two members of the core team, Eduardo Lundgren (with Liferay since 2007/8) and Zeno Rocha (Sep 2012) volunteered. (Eduardo was mentioned already in episode 3 with Nate Cavanaugh, Zeno has joined Liferay since then. Both of them are members of the brazilian team.)
- Zeno's project jquery boilerplate. He's also one of the founders of the Brazil JS foundation
- Rosetta Stone, no longer hidden but very prominent on the website, comparing jQuery, YUI, AlloyUI
- The traumatic transition time in 2010 between Liferay 5.2 and 6.0, when AlloyUI replaced jQuery
- How Zeno got assimilated into Liferay
- The new website for AlloyUI with Tutorials, Examples and Documentation (alloyui.com)
- What's new in AlloyUI 2.0, when will it come into Liferay?
- Feedback from the community (portuguese video on youtube)
- Can I run different versions of YUI on the same site/page (as I can with jQuery within YUI with the help of YQuery)?
- who else is using AlloyUI or contributing to it?
- Zeno will be speaking at Jax 2013
- Honorable mention of the library that YUI is unofficially built on top of.
- Integration of taglibs into Liferay IDE/Developer Studio (Link to Greg's Episode)
- AlloyUI on twitter and stackoverflow
If you want to see more from Eduardo and Zeno, they also opened the recent 24 hour webcast "Day of Liferay" and the recording is available (click their names to go directly to the video), or follow @eduardolundgren and @zenorocha
