The answer is 7: East Coast, Hungary, France, West Coast, Europe, Spain, and Italy.

Liferay's official HQ address is in Walnut, CA. It's near Los Angeles proper, but not in it!

Which of the following is NOT a section of Liferay 6.0’s Control Panel?
While Teams are also an integral part of Liferay 6.0's social collaboration system, there is no specific Control Panel section for Teams -- they are accessed via the "Communities" section. Therefore, Teams is the correct answer here.

Liferay, Inc. was founded in which year?
While Liferay began as an open source project in 2001, the incorporation of Liferay did not occur until 2004. So, the answer is 2004.

Congrats to the winners, and looking forward to round 2!

Thanks for the answers. Just wanted to bring into your notice about false information of Liferay Headquarters in Wiki as well as Liferay Facebook page in which the contest is hosted. Many people who are from countries like japan, india, uk,etc, who havent got the privilege to see the actual headquarters may mistake it to be the correct information. May be someone needs to correct that

Thanks & Regards,
