Tech Talk Live Reloaded: Share Customizations

TTL starts back Wednesday 6th July and continues on the first Wednesday of every month.

The first episode in this series is all about the Share add-ons Alfresco's Partner Enablement team developed for the official partner site.

This session provides an overview of the customisations they have developed for this real-world example, which have been recently added to the Share Extras project. The add-ons include:

  • Flash-based video previews and in-browser playback;
  • A Site Poll Dashlet, which allows site administrators to define a number of polls in which users can vote;
  • Custom policies for managing content expiration and UI components to report on this;
  • A Password Reset utility for the Share login page;
  • An Administration Console add-on for bulk-creating users;
  • Activity tracking using Google Analytics.

Will Abson, will present a brief overview of the add-ons, after which there will be an interactive technical discussion around the topics brought up, such as:

  • General development methodologies;
  • Best practices in customising Share and Alfresco;
  • Skills required and level of effort involved;
  • Useful resources.

With Jeff Potts, Chief Community Officer and Will Abson, Solutions Engineer at Alfresco.
