Radio Liferay Episode 58: Jorge Ferrer continued

  Two episodes (or an eternity) ago, I spoke to Jorge Ferrer, Liferay's VP of Engineering. We didn't have enough time to finish the conversation, so we continued a while after - and then I buried the recording /o\. Anyway, apart from it being still from "before the release of the current version", it's still relevant stuff, I feel bad about missing to post it. Check for yourself - here it finally is.

As before, we're speaking about various internal and external topics and I've also been teasing him a bit.

We're talking about these (and more) topics

  • Microservices vs Monoliths
  • Shortly before the release many modules were moved around and renamed. We talk about the reasons and what this meant for the translations
  • What's the meaning of "Feature-Complete"?
  • A lot of Feedback starts to come in during the Beta Cycle
  • Nitpicking on the Beta Criteria: JBoss and Upgrade Routines
  • Lookahead on the next episode on Performance Tuning
  • Releaseplans (of course, I could have retrofitted an exact release date...)
  • What's it like to be hired into Liferay Engineering?
  • Is it forbidden to write Javadoc?

Oops - probably a leftover of my Carrera racing career. Corrected, thanks.

Radio Liferay Episode 44: Stian Sigvartsen on Social Apps Proxy

  This is my conversation with Stian Sigvartsen, winner of the Marketplace App contest with his Social Apps Proxy (Link) and well known member of the UK Liferay usergroup, working in Devon and quite a lot with Liferay. Our paths cross quite often, but we finally found some time to talk about Stian's award winning app which basically takes all the boring stuff out of OAuth integrations into Liferay

He did a great job of explaining the background and solution in audio. Here's what we talked about:

  • Social Apps Proxy enables you to integrate content from other social networks into your portal.
  • It's working through OAuth, basically taking over all of the dirty work of authentication, leaving the actual integration works for the implementor
  • Stian's sample app on github (Link): Getting twitter mentions with 10 lines of code
  • What problem does OAuth solve? Comparing OAuth with a Valet Key.
  • Linking Liferay's identity to twitter's (in this sample)
  • How the social apps proxy works: An application just uses it as HTTP proxy, does not care about identity and is happy to get the identity automagically taken care of
  • Social Apps Proxy on Marketplace
  • Supported Versions of Liferay 6.1 to 6.2 and OAuth 1.0a to 2 to be extended
  • Microservices
  • All Code is to be open sourced soon, contributors are welcome.
