At Liferay, we're always trying to make the life of developers easier. We're constantly improving our products and releasing new open source libraries. Helping people is what drives us.

I'm slowly back to my regular sleep rhythm, after the highly anticipated sleep deprivation week that Devcon always is. Those ~450 participants that were there and made it the biggest and greatest Devcon so far will have seen that Liferay becomes a lot more serious in terms of messaging while still staying accessible on all levels. I've seen lots of connections being made and can...

Answers can range anywhere from a quick pitch like "a tool that allows people to build their websites" to something more specific like "a framework for integrating information, people and processes across organizational boundaries." (Thanks, Wikipedia) Though true, those answers don't always address the...

Liferay comes with so many features that it's hard to judge when a feature is a good solution for a given problem. I'd like to shine some light onto some of these features and common misconceptions about them because it's easy to abuse them for purposes for which they're not well suited - despite making the impression they might.

CC BY 2.0 by David GoehringLuckily that has been fixed (currently in EE only,...
