I took a few moments to write up a transcript of the audio from the recent Johns Hopkins University uPortal demo featured in the February 2010 uPortal Community call and I'm sharing that transcript in this blog post. I'd say this is a "good enough" transcript of the audio in the YouTube video, not a perfect transcript.

A couple weeks ago (March 17 - 21), I spent a very satisfying and productive week working at Johns Hopkins University. Chris Doyle and I spent the bulk of it developing something I consider to be a real gem: an implementation of uPortal's Groups and Permissions (GaP) API that discovers groups maintained in an LDAP directory and makes them available for use in the portal. You can find a more complete description of this technology, its features, and configuration at this wiki page.
I'm very pleased to see that the upcoming JA-SIG conference will have many seminars and presentations well-aligned with the uPortal project and the needs of uPortal deployers. I look forward to this conference and to being able to attend many of these presentations.
I like Unicon's user interface solution to balance of protection against accidental development issue vote removal and convenience in executing vote changes, and say so in this post, complete with screenshot.
