Liferay Training is the quickest way to learn best practices for successful deployment, administration, or tuning of Liferay Portal.
Developers are responsible for creating portlets and customizing portal functionality. Participants in this training course will learn how to develop plugins that can create, update and delete records from the database, implement permissions and use the debugger to fix errors in their code. We will also cover how to extend core portlets, override Liferay services via Spring and customize the control panel. By the end of the course, participants will find themselves well equipped to efficiently develop on the Liferay platform.
Portal Administrators are responsible for managing the entire system including users, site content and security. Participants will learn how to correctly assign users to Organizations and Communities, restrict access to content using Roles and Permissions and create new pages and content using Liferay's Content Management System.
System Administrators are responsible for installing and configuring the server. Participants will learn how to install Liferay, hook into an enterprise database, configure LDAP to create and sync user accounts, and install and manage Liferay Plugins. We will also cover advanced topics such as clustering, performance tuning and monitoring.
Liferay Advanced Developer Training continues where the standard Developer Training leaves off and offers a deeper dive into Liferay Portal development.
