We were very happy to have received the Liferay Marketplace award for the best Free Opensource portlet for 2014 . This was a huge thing for us not only because Vaadin.com itself uses the Tori forum portlet as its main discussion board, but also because Tori has shown us how awesome a combination Vaadin and Liferay really are together! With the help of Vaadin you're able to build real Business Applications (with a capital A) and Liferay gives a solid ground for Vaadin applications to lean on. A while ago we had a joint webinar about Vaadin & Liferay together, but received lots of questions on a more detailed Vaadin introduction to those of you not familiar with Vaadin from before. Good news: We're hosting an Introduction to Vaadin Webinar already next week that will make you familiar with Vaadin in 30 minutes. Join Vaadin founder Joonas Lehtinen for an introduction and with answers to your questions on Thursday September 4th @ 10AM PT (1PM ET). Sign up now at https://docs.google.com/a/vaadin.com/forms/d/1A_sTdnB_xp-S3F4Y6i4EpHeORTuNJ-kiPUcBA4QE0lo/viewform and learn to make your own Tori or larger business apps with Liferay and Vaadin!
