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 57: Jim Hinkey and Cody Hoag on documentation
Today I'm welcoming a repeat guest and a new one: Jim Hinkey (of episode 21 fame) and Cody Hoag - both from Liferay's documentation and knowledge management team. This episode has unfortunately suffered from various disturbances in the space-time-continuum: I had it sitting on my disk for quite a while. The Javadoc Contest that we've "started" in this episode was actually published/announced in the meantime and unfortunately ended recently. Congratulations to Sébastien and Marcellus. However, not to render the call for action in this episode useless, let's start another one soon - there can't be enough Javadoc, and I admit that we have still plenty of opportunities to write new documentation left for you. Please subscribe to the comments on Cody's winner's announcements to see the update - I'll also mention it on a Radio Liferay episode once it's been restarted. But I'll also put a word in for you if you already write the javadoc now.
- glimpse of history - remembering episode 21 with Jim
- Javadoc coverage went up from then on
- Javadoc metrics tool by Cody
- Javadoc contribution process: Send to liferay user repo, tag Cody @codyhoag
- Javadoc guidelines on dev.liferay.com (two flavors - basic and advanced guidelines)
- Submitting Unit Tests together with Javadoc
- The new home for documentation, dev.liferay.com
- "Edit on github" available for documentation. Use it - it's easy.
- Documentation: Javadoc, Taglibraries and other duties of the team.
(mention Mike Williams on taglib pullrequests)
- docs.liferay.com and its content
blade repository (in the meantime moved from Ray's to Liferay's repository)
- Migration Tutorials (WAR->7.0->modules) on dev.liferay.com
- "blade migrate" is (at least temporarily) out??? (summoning Greg)
- the current Javadoc Contest and a cheesy mentioning of 2015's internal javadoc contest) (#2 Igor Beslic, #1 Moi)
- (and some hints on how to dominate a javadoc contest)
