Codespring has attended Liferay’s Symposium for the Central and Eastern European region held in Budapest, Hungary on May 17, 2012.

A few words about the event: On the agenda we have found mainly business and technical tracks, sessions, and presentations by key Liferay leaders. Most interesting, we have learned about client case studies highlighting how Liferay has provided solutions for their organizational needs.

This year’s theme was The Liferay Platform. According to the official invitation “Liferay provides the market’s leading open source portal platform, used for a wide range of solutions. Last year’s release of the Liferay Portal 6EE has enabled our customers, partners, and the wider community to expand our footprint among enterprises worldwide. With a solid architecture, flexible deployment options, advanced social networking services, and a growing marketplace for extensions, Liferay is becoming the de facto standard for enterprise web development. The symposium focuses on that expansion, with session topics that address the expanded role of the Liferay Platform as a basis for the next generation of web applications and services”.

The sessions were held and led by Liferay’s C-level executives, core architects and technical leads, as well as key clients and partners.
