10:00 - Registration
10:30 - Welcome and Introduction
10:45 - Getting Used to the API - Olaf Kock, Training Manager, Liferay
Liferay has a powerful API, but the size of it can be overwhelming. Follow Olaf on a tour into the API - see what's necessary to remote-control Liferay and use the features you can easily reach on the UI with code.
11:30 - Controlling Access to Web Form Elements Based on User Roles and Dynamic Business Rules - Femi Ajayi, Chief Solution Architect, Digirati
There are situations where different parts of a web form should be made visible to different types of users based on their roles, user attributes, and the business rules that are defined at runtime or through a business process. This presentation will walk through a solution for this requirement that has been implemented for the NHS by Digirati using Liferay, and how we aim to improve the implemented solution using semantic annotations.
12:15 - Lunch
13:15 - OSGi Fundamentals - Milen Dyankov, Senior Consultant, Liferay

14:00 - Extending Audience Targeting with OSGi Modules - Matt Fulford, CTO, PFIKS
