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 53: Nate Cavanaugh - New frontend features in Liferay 7

  I met repeat guest Nate Cavanaugh, Liferay's Director of UI Engineering, at this year's Devcon and he answered all UI-based questions that we could quickly think about - specifically with regards to Liferay 7.

As we recorded this on site at Devcon, you'll hear more background noise than usual - Auphonic did their best to clean the recording, and they did a great job.

Here are some of the topics that we talked about:

  • UI frameworks get out of style soon. Can I still use AngularJS?
  • Do I have to throw everything away that I have invested already?
  • The YUI story and what its discontinuation means for AlloyUI
  • Will AUI be reimplemented on jQuery? Is jQuery part of Liferay 7? What about different versions of jQuery?
  • metal.js
  • Lexicon, UI-Language, User Interface Guidelines
  • Artifacts and Implementation of Lexicon
  • Bootstrap, Bootstrap components, Atlas, the bootstrap versions in Liferay 6.2 and the components of it that are available.
  • What happens when Bootstrap 4 comes out?
  • Single Page Application, SPA, SennaJS: Go without full page reloads, largely by default.
  • New Theming Tools - You can also use new tools in Liferay 6.2 (AYOR though). No more _diffs folder, pure frontend packages, themelets.
  • What kind of themelets do we wish to have?
  • We probably have forgotten something. Ask your questions in the comment section of this episode to be covered in future episodes.
