Welcome to Radio Liferay, a peek into what is going on in Liferay from the people doing it themselves.
Radio Liferay Episode 59: Testing @ Liferay with Kristoffer Onias and Victor Ware
Yay, another episode, and maybe in time to sweeten your trip to Devcon in Amsterdam. I spoke to Kristoffer Onias and Victor Ware. Both work on testing Liferay with different areas of interest. You'll hear quite a bit about what Liferay does internally on testing.
I actually talked to them quite a while ago, and the episode has been sitting on my disk since then.The numbers that you hear may no longer be accurate, but the overall information definitely is. Sorry for keeping it a secret for so long (there's an even longer kept secret... up next...)
- Different levels of Tests:
- Integration Tests
- Functional Tests
- How SPA influenced frontend testing
- Selenium, Selenium IDE, Web Driver, Capybara, Docker, and Jenkins
- How pull requests are tested before they reach their addressee
- The scale of Liferay's testing infrastructure
- KC's (at the time) still unnamed project. Watch out for him at the North American Symposium for updates to this. Oh, and: By now his project actually has a name: Testray
- Maintenance of large test sets - UI locators etc.
- SevenCogs and its resurrection
- How to scale testing infrastructure for potentially a lot more servers and environments
- The Test Pyramid
- A wild idea: Livestream of test runs
- Liferay's Testing Whitepaper and a Testing Webinar
- 50 shades of red and its part 2

Radio Liferay Episode 56: Jorge Ferrer
Today I'm welcoming a repeat guest, Jorge Ferrer, Liferay's VP of Engineering. I've had the great opportunity to ask him a lot of questions that provide deep insight into what's running behind the scenes in the engineering team. We didn't have enough time, so this is part 1 of our conversation, to be continued in episode 58. I need to squeeze in the (already recorded) episode that contains more information about the Javadoc Contest (please participate). Those episode links will work once the two episodes are public)
We're talking about these (and more) topics
- the engineering team passed the 150 people mark, distributed world wide.
- Communication in a team that's distributed through the world, tools
- Some nasty german guy recently took Jorge's #3 contributor place on the public forums
- Participation & Contribution: Check https://dev.liferay.com/participate.
- What happens to pullrequests to the Liferay repository? Should you rather direct to the component lead?
- Coding Standards, Design Patterns and how many you want to use in a single project
- Pullrequests and who's working on them.
- The experience of upgrading the architecture to OSGi in Liferay 7
- Jorge's Architecture Blog Article(s)
- News about Developer Network: Many new project documented there
- We're closing (for today) with a short fun quiz about new frontend tools introduced with Liferay 7, in which Jorge earns his street credibility.
- stay tuned for the continuation of this episode, most likely in episode 58.
