Yes, we were streaming for 24h about Liferay DXP and Liferay Portal 7.3 (and previous versions). All kinds of technical information that might be of interest for you. You might have missed it, but luckily we have it all recorded - and the recordings are available for you:
The audience are developers that have had the "pleasure" of writing custom Item selector views.
For 7.3 we've added a new API (ItemSelectorViewDescriptor) that simplifies a lot the process of adding item selection functionality for any kind of content. It is mostly declarative and removes the need to write a custom JSP file.
Introducing the Info Framework: Leveraging Modern Site Building with custom content types
2020-09-24 11:10 UTC
The audience of this session is developers of solutions based on Liferay. Specially for those who...
have found cases where you needed a full custom portlet to support a custom content type or a custom entity in general, but it didn't really have any special functionality,
have tried to leverage the Asset Framework but found it too complex or maybe had limitations that didn't match their needs
love the new features built by the Modern Site Building project and would like your business users to leverage them not just for Web Content, Blogs and Documents, but also for custom entities in your project
are interested in learning the newest kid in the block in the family of Liferay's frameworks and how we are applying everything we've learned all these years.

Learn how the new Content Dashboard provided by Liferay 7.3 can be a precious tool for content administrators, contributors and developers. Beyond the out-of-the-box features, discover “filter favorites“ and “CSV export” custom extensions (open sourced for the /dev/24) and deep-dive into implementation as an example of advanced portlet customization.

A lot has changed in Liferay's CMS over the years - particularly the last years. And in version 7.3, this all will be taken even further.
In this session, we have a discussion with some interested people of all sides to see where this all is headed, and what to do with the new features in 7.3.
Is the current feature set easy to use? What are the supported usecases? Do they surprise the developers of those features? Are there low hanging fruits for further extension? Which gems does the current implementation hide?
Providing custom asset selection with Information List Providers
2020-09-24 13:15 UTC
The Liferay Asset Publisher provides a huge amount of possibilities to customize which assets you want to display. But it falls short when it comes to e.g. display assets based on individual user preferences (e.g. personal interests). We built a solution for this based on Info List Providers. Users can select interests (based on Liferay categories) and the Info List Provider uses that information to filter the asset list. With Information List Providers it is possible to programmatically adjust your scope and flexibly pick the desired assets based on your needs or the customers desires. They are part of the Liferay Info Framework and can hugely ease the use of Asset Publishers but even if they provide great ways to pick the documents and contents you want there are some things that are not available and should be considered when thinking of using them in your Liferay application.
In this session you can learn more on how to use Information List Providers. Which options and restrictions there are and what we have learned from working with them.
How to turn any existing website into Liferay Content Pages
Sébastien Le Marchand

Content Pages are an opportunity to migrate into Liferay some existing websites initially built upon other technologies. Developers and architects will discover in this session some ways to maximize the automation of this kind of project. The key component is a home-made tool (open sourced for the /dev/24) converting static sites into Content Pages.
Content Segmentation with InfoListProviders and ElasticSearch Queries
2020-09-25 00:00 UTC
I will be demonstrating how InfoListProviders and ElasticSearch queries can be used together to cover a real world problem of content segmentation with complex combinations. That presentation can be interesting to devs and people from marketing teams.
