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 37: Iliyan Peychev on Frontend and AlloyUI
- where Iliyan's non-spanish accent comes from
- Iliyan is a long time user and contributor to YUI (since YUI 2.x) and came on board when Liferay was looking for an Ajax Developer after having seen many of the AlloyUI components.
- Liferay's currently open positions (changed since we recorded, but still a lot & interesting positions)
- How to approach AlloyUI, what tools to use
- as 6.2 uses Bootstrap for themes, we talk about the migration of existing themes and the way we work with css. (the episode has been recorded just before the actual release of 6.2)
- The Liferay AUI upgrade tool will cover a lot of the upgrade work you need to do to migrate your existing 6.1 plugins to 6.2 - covering various API upgrades etc. (see https://github.com/liferay/liferay-aui-upgrade-tool#what-it-does - doesn't it sound like paradise?)
- AlloyUI now has a testing infrastructure - automatically running a on a huge number of browsers to make sure nobody introduces regressions with a change to AlloyUI
- Roadmap for AlloyUI past 2.0
- Just like all Open Source projects, AlloyUI lives and improves on feedback - please help and get involved, get your impression heard. (and the same goes to podcasts. Please let me know which episodes you like, what to change, topic requests. You have blog comments to this episode on liferay.com, itunes comments and ratings and other platforms - whereever you get this podcast from)
- The AlloyUI team hangs out on Forums, IRC, stackoverflow, twitter, github, jira - use whatever suits you best.
- An alternative to Bootstrap that has been considered
- Though symposium season is over now, you, dear listener, might consider to come to one of the 2014 Symposiums, Portal Solution Forums, Roadshows or DevCon.
- AlloyUI is available through CDN
