Montreal, November 24th, 2015 — Savoir-faire Linux® — an exceptional team of 110 Free Software Consultants based in Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto and Paris — was honored with a Liferay Community Excellence Award at the Liferay North America Symposium which was held last week in Chicago. This prestigious annual award recognizes ten Liferay partners who have shown unique and valuable dedication to the Liferay open source community and contributed significantly.
“We are very much honoured to receive this award from Liferay for the 5th year in a row”, said Savoir-faire Linux’s Executive Vice-president Christophe Villemer, in a short thank you video uploaded online shortly after the Award Ceremony on November 17th. “I am particularly proud of our team for the amazing work they do with our customers and the community (…), Sven Werlen, Marat Gubaidullin, and all our certified developers and trainers.”
Liferay develops the leading open source portal and collaborative tools for the enterprise. Savoir-faire Linux, which started to explore the potential of this platform based on the Java technology in 2008, is now in the global Top 30 of Liferay’s Platinum Partners.
“Liferay strongly believes in the power of open communities to develop high quality software”, said Liferay’s Community Manager James Falkner. “The Community Excellence award is an important part of that — it recognizes those leading companies that have given much more than they have received and that share our same open spirit. Savoir-faire Linux continues to be an important part of our success and Liferay is pleased to recognize them for their achievements in our community.”
