OFBiz - Configuration Only (or Look No Code!) - Sharan Foga
OFBiz is a great tool for development, customising and building applications but you don't have to be a developer to 'customise' it. In a world full of developers, if a software package doesn't do what you want then the first thing that people think about is modifying the code and developing a custom solution. This isn't always necessary and in fact OFBiz has been created with a wide range of configurable parameters that change its functionality without writing code.

In this presentation we will take you though the main levels of configuration available in OFBiz and show you just how much you can do without writing a single line of code.
