WCS 2011 Upgrade Workshop. Community input needed.

Company Blogs August 22, 2011 By Brett Swaim Staff

Hello Liferay Community!

I'll be running an upgrade workshop during WCS 2011 in Anaheim, CA. During that workshop, I'll be upgrading a Liferay 5.2.3 installation to Liferay 6.1 CE. I have data that I can use, but what fun is that?! I would like to upgrade one community members 5.2.3 installation to 6.1 CE for this.

So here is my plan, if you all send me links to a zip of your plugins sdk that contains your ext plugin, portlets, hooks, webs, and everything else I will choose one person's data set to use during the workshop. When the workshop completes, I will give that data back to the contributer so they get a free 6.1 CE upgrade! Keep in mind that this code will be made public (at least to the people participating in the workshop) so if you have code that is under NDA I can't use it. 

E-mail me a link to your zip file at brett.swaim@liferay.com and I'll pick a code set by September 2nd, 2011!

You don't have to be going to WCS to participate in the code submission!

Are you still going to be speaking on upgrading 5.2 as per the Agenda? We're on 5.2 looking to understand what it will take to move from 5.2 to 6 or 6.1.

I'm going to go ahead and do 5.2.3, due to public demand! I've edited my post appropriately. Also, I've received a few code bases but would still be interested in seeing more if anybody has one they would like to see upgraded! I'm not going to set a deadline on this, just get it to me when you can!
