Today was Day Two of Liferay's West Coast Symposium 2011 here in Anaheim, California and it began with one of the most interesting talks I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. The topic? “The History of Open Source” by freelance journalist, Dana Blankenhorn.
This is one man who has a presence on stage and I personally found it a fascinating and engaging talk. If you ever have a chance to hear Dana speak, I'd highly recommend it. Some of the other topics covered today included:
- Backend Integrations with James Min
- Industry Insights from the Trenches: Why Liferay Makes Sense in a Hyperactive Digital World
- Creating an Enterprise User Experience Platform Using Liferay Portal
- Liferay's Open Source Community: Past, Present and Future
Cignex Datamatics won Liferay's Partner of the Year for 2011 (congratulations guys!)
Brian Chan (Chief Architect and Founder) gave the closing notes today. It was a fascinating opportunity to hear his insights into the future of the company and it's successes.
