To Identity and Beyond!

It’s unusual to develop applications that have no identity requirements nowadays. Whether it’s securing access to resources, synchronising data between devices, or providing a customised experience, any new project will soon need that login form.

While you might start out with a simple login form and a backend user directory, these soon grow into their own beasts, when requirements call for multi-factor authentication, or machine-to-machine authorisation functionality.

These requirements and associated maintenance costs are often at odds with the desire to focus on building new features that actually bring your users value, or fixing bugs that currently bring them pain.

In this talk, you will learn about OAuth, OpenID Connect, and JSON Web Tokens; where they came from, how they work, and how they can simplify your projects. From single-page apps to the APIs that drive them, and everything in between, you’ll also learn about the five most common authentication flows, and how to pick the right one for the job.

Get updates in your inbox

I don't send many updates. I don't like to spam. Let's face it - I've not posted many new articles for a while (although I do plan on changing that). If you subscribe to new articles, I'll send no more than two emails a week. As for workshop and conference information, that'll be as and when I have details. It's not likely to be more than an email a week.
