Alfresco

If you need to get ramped up on Alfresco, come to DevCon one day early and take advantage of condensed training. If you are new to the platform, you should consider JumpStart Training. It lasts the entire day. If you already have some experience with Alfresco, you might be interested in Advanced Training, which also lasts the entire day, but you may choose which two Advanced Training classes to attend--each lasts half a day. And, whether you are an Alfresco veteran or not, we've just added a full-day Crafter Rivet Training Course (San Jose Only). Training Day at DevCon is priced separately from the main conference.

You can sign-up for either JumpStart Training, Advanced Training or the Crafter Rivet Training Course when you register for DevCon.

Advanced Alfresco Training
Advanced training at DevCon is the perfect opportunity for developers with a decent level of experience to consolidate their theory and practice on the Alfresco platform. There are five Master Classes to choose from, and as each one takes half a day, you will only be able to enroll in two. All DevCon Master Classes will be delivered by an acknowledged Alfresco expert with proven specialization in their field.

Application Development from the Ground Up (Advanced)
This half-day Master Class for developers with Rich McKnight looks at building an application that does not fit exactly into the Share collaboration mould. Through a combination of presentations, demonstrations and exercises, we will examine the information architecture design, functionality and the best ways to design the interface to support typical operations. Finally, we will look at the user experience and how best to leverage Share as a platform in this type of situation.

Document Library and Actions (Advanced)
The document library is one of the areas in Share where users will spend most of their time. In this half-day Master Class, we will look at customizing the document library list view, adding custom document previewers and customizing and adding in document library actions. The class is aimed at developers and will feature presentations, demonstrations and exercises under the direction of Oliver Laabs in Berlin and Matt Gross in San Jose.

Activiti in Action (Advanced)
This half-day Master Class with Joerg Sauer and his team, examines some existing workflows to see how they can be extended by including repository interactions in workflows. Specifically, it will teach you how to set properties and aspects on documents to model status changes, move documents between folders and really understand the concept of replacing an individual with a role.

Alfresco – Statistically Speaking (Advanced)
How many files are in my system, how many workflows are running and how long do they take to finish? If you want to provide this information to users and admins, you should sign up to this half-day Master Class. Through a series of presentations, demonstrations and exercises, Shoeb Sargueoh and his team will walk you through all of the web scripts and querying technologies, so that you can build useful and fully functioning statistical dashlets of your own.

Advanced System Admin: DevCon Edition (Advanced)
In this Master Class, specifically designed for Alfresco Administrators, we’ll take a close look at how to get your installation up and running on 4.0. With working examples, expert instructor Darryl Quinn will cover how to upgrade an Alfresco installation and then how to convert that installation to use the Solr indexing engine.
