Hello,
I would like to suggest that Liferay put together an advanced developer training session. I attended the developer training out in California, but now, a year later, I would like some more advanced training on developing in Liferay. Something that goes beyond "how to set up the EXT environment". Please let me know your thoughts and the feasibility of something like this.

Just off the top of my head:

Training should NOT spend any time in setup. Adv. developers should already have EXT environment set up for programming.

Spend some time learning how Liferay functions. (cookies, session vars, struts, etc.)

Learn about creating an advanced portlet. (small app. with database connectivity, multi-paged)

Learn about modifying Liferay. (change how user add portlets, change top dropdown, etc.)

Learn about dynamic themes. (add in variables to how theme looks)


I'll add more later...

This is actually in our roadmap for next year (2010). I'm very glad to hear there would be interest in this; sometimes putting an offering out there is very much a "leap of faith" because you worry that there may be no interest.

Please keep the topic ideas coming!
