15:30 - Decoupled & Headless CMS: The power to adapt the site user experience for SPAs and voice assistants, among others. (David Gómez, Developer Advocate @ Liferay)

The content, data and communication channels that you offer to your users through traditional web sites are continually evolving. Nowadays, you need to adapt the way you reach customers, using channels that are more convenient for them (whether this is a website, mobile app or a smart speaker) whilst building more useful and optimized user experiences. That’s where a Decoupled and Headless platform really shines. Through a great API, which allows access to all of the content and available features, the developer will be able to build these experiences and reduce the cost of integration, boost the reuse of content across channels and prepare for new channels or types of experiences to come. In this talk, we will show a specific example of how Liferay can be used to reach the user in these different ways. We will show how you can use the tools provided in Liferay 7.2 to let users consume your site’s content seamlessly through alternative channels such as a custom frontend app and a voice assistant. At the end of the talk we should have provided a good vision on how you can take advantage of the GraphQL endpoints to access your content with your favorite JS framework, or how the new Liferay Headless APIs allows a mobile application or a voice assistant to consume the information stored in your site.

16:35 - Building “Trust” using Hyperledger Open Source Technologies (Catarina Reis, Professor @ Polytechnic of Leiria)

One of the key goals addressed by blockchain technology is the establishment of trust and transparency between interested parties. Open Source technologies not only provide the trust and transparency required, as they also address issues such as accountability and transparency at their core.

Hyperledger is an open source initiative hosted by The Linux Foundation that strives to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. The initiative includes leaders in the industry from distinct contexts (finance, banking, IoT, supply chains, manufacturing,...).

“A blockchain is a peer-to-peer distributed ledger forged by consensus, combined with a system for “smart contracts” and other assistive technologies. Together these can be used to build a new generation of transactional applications that establishes trust, accountability and transparency at their core, while streamlining business processes and legal constraints.”

Through an Open Source and collaborative approach, Hyperledger aims at ensuring transparency, longevity, interoperability and support that are fundamental aspects to bring blockchain technologies to mainstream commercial adoption.
