New Training Courses

Company Blogs August 22, 2008 By Richard Sezov Staff

Some people might be wondering why I've been so scarce around here. The reason for this is that I and my team have been heads-down working on a couple of brand new training courses that we will soon be offering.

We've just put the finishing touches on both courses, and I am excited about what's in store.

First up is the new Portal Administration course. This is a two-day introductory course which focuses on designing a portal, portal administration, and content management. It covers many of Liferay's included portlets, including the wiki and the shopping cart, and shows you how to administer all the aspects of a Liferay Portal, including tags, assets, documents, polls, and more. You will also get to delve deeply into Liferay's Content Management system, creating structures and advanced templates to display them.

Because this course now exists, we have removed all of the portal administration and content management stuff from the Liferay Development course, turning that course into a concentrated three-day course on Liferay development only. So now developers can take a course that covers just development on the Liferay platform, and portal administrators can take a course that covers just portal administration!

If that weren't enough, we have also added a Liferay System Administration course. This is another three-day course that covers Liferay from a server administrator's point of view. It covers everything from installing Liferay for the enterprise (both configuring bundles for the enterprise and installing Liferay on an existing application server) to administering Liferay, to plugin management, and more. An entire day of this course is spent creating a two-node load balanced Liferay cluster.

You will also learn some techniques for performance tuning Liferay, as well as how to back up a Liferay portal. There's more, but I don't want to give it all away.

Keep your eyes peeled on the Liferay training pages (under the Services menu) to see when you can begin signing up for these new courses. These courses are a direct result of feedback from those who have taken our training in the past, and it is our hope that they will serve you better.
