Welcome to Radio Liferay, a peek into what is going on in Liferay from the people doing it themselves.
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.
We're talking about these (and more) topics
- Microservices vs Monoliths
- Buzzword or breeze of fresh air?
- DHH The Majestic Monolith
- Approach this technology option like any other
- If you can't build a monolith, you are probably getting an even bigger mess if you approach microservices
- Milen's presentation: Microservices and Modularity or the difference between treatment and cure (or on youtube)
- 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?
- office envy
- shared spaces, decoration, own desks, separate working environments, inspiration, agora
- Is it forbidden to write Javadoc?

Radio Liferay Episode 47: Chema Balsas and Emil Öberg on Themes and Frontend Development
Another Devcon conversation - make sure not to miss this event next year! I grabbed Chema Balsas, Software Engineer at Liferay Spain, and Emil Öberg, Consultant at Monator Technologies, a Liferay Partner Company in Sweden. This is a three-way conversation with Chema Balsas and Emil Öberg that we had during Liferay's Devcon 2014. Chema had a Theme-Workshop (sorry, no recording) and Emil a presentation on Rapid Frontend Development, so it made sense to talk to both of them as their experience overlaps. Speaking of experience: Chema is a Software Engineer in Liferay Spain, Emil is a Consultant at Monator Technologies, a Liferay Partner Company in Sweden.
- the qualities of Liferay
- UX (user experience) and UX guidelines
- Building themes
- How to start new theme projects
- Emil's github repository
- The problem with people like me doing frontend design
- SASS, LESS
- New themes coming to marketplace
- Disabling Bootstrap and the future plans with it
- Best practices on editing/creating themes, how to update servers and test
- Sublime, Webstorm, Brackets
- Developing a Toolchain, ROI
- Upgrading themes to new versions of Liferay (see also Episode 38)
- and probably more topics that I forgot to add to these shownotes.
