With emerging technologies such as jQuery, jQuery mobile, jQuery UI, SASS, Fluid, JSON and others. We would like to discuss best practices to incorporate all technologies throughout the uPortal framework and portlets without conflicts.
Discuss standards, proper aliasing, and development techniques that would help the uPortal community. The deliverable of this session should be updated documentation in the Jasig wiki.

An overview of design principals and processes that will help you achieve a better Portal user experience. Bring information to the user and guide them with notifications. Encourage searching over browsing. Make evidence based decisions using surveys, usability studies and monitoring. An overview of our portlet style-guide that identifies common user interface elements and standardizes HTML/CSS.
This presentation covers lessons-learned and design choices from CalPoly's uPortal4 upgrade project. The talk will touch on web technologies such as HTML/CSS and AJAX briefly but the focus is on high-level design not technical details.
In addition to and separate from uPortal itself, Jasig also sponsors a comprehensive range of compelling, off-the-shelf portlet projects you can use to assemble an effective campus portal quickly. The twelve months since the last conference have brought us several major, exciting new developments int his space.
This session is a "Year in Review" for Apereo portlet projects, highlighting the most important updates in features, user experience, technology, and best practices. We will also discuss exciting new work under development now.
If you're thinking of implementing uPortal or uMobile, or if you already have uPortal and need to catch up with new developments in portlets, this session is for you. This is a high-level, highly-visual overview: uPortal and Java platform knowledge is not required.
Discuss changing technology in the mobile environment. uMobile was originally developed to use Titanium Studio by Appcelerator, although there is discussion of uMobile using PhoneGap and being purely native for both Android and iOS. Discuss new mobile environments such as Windows 8, Ubuntu, Firefox OS, and Blackberry 10.
Also discussion on future portlet development using DAOs and JSON feeds that could be used for both uMobile apps (having native portlet views) and uPortal portlets.
