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 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

- 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.
