Apereo Portlets Showcase 2013

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Monday 3rd June, 2013

1:00pm to 1:45pm (PST)

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.
