jQuery UI Lead is hired by Liferay

Category: Java, JavaScript, jQuery

Liferay, authors of a popular open source Java portal, have hired Paul Bakaus lead on jQuery UI to work on it full time.

Liferay’s plans are to standardize all their products to use jQuery and its plugins for the future (you’ll still be able to use other libraries at the same time) – it’s therefore in their very interest to see jQuery UI enjoying a long life, growing to meet expectations of all kinds of clients and beyond. To reach this goal, hiring me was the most logical decision: I now have no excuse not-to-focus on jQuery UI for a while – after all, it’s my day job!

This is good news for jQuery users, especially those that want a better widget framework, and one that looks good a la Ext.
