Last week I spent a few days in London at the RSA Conference. I was presenting a talk on SCIM & OAuth2 specifically looking at issues working in the cloud.
The way the sessions were set up, is that there were two 20 minute sessions back to back, the first being delivered by Nicolas XXX from UnboundID, who did a very nice introduction and overview of SCIM. His talk laid a very nice foundation to mine, and I think the two talks worked very well together. I followed Nick with my talk, that I had biased towards OAuth2 especially since Nick was already covering SCIM. Knowing that many of the attendees would be asking “Why OAuth” I tried to focus on those questions and show use cases that showed how OAuth is a natural fit.
Then this week I was in Japan at the OpenAM Consortium Summit, where Judy and I both gave keynotes. Judy covered the Business aspects of Forgerock, and I addressed the community, and technical roadmaps.
The technical presentations seemed to be very well received. I basically spoke about the roadmaps for all three products, and I saw a lot of folks visibly excited by some of the features coming down the pike!
Here is a sample of the media coverage:
Next week I will be in the office all week, and we are expecting several folks from out of town to be joining us. Jonathan, Nicolas, Sean, Steve and Sam will all be in Vancouver.
From a community aspect, I am again looking for folks in the community that would like to get involved.
I am looking for people, who could help with:
• Translation. If you are fluent in both english and a second language, we would love you to be able to help (and possibly end up being the owner) of the translation. Many of the new features we have done for OpenAM 10.1 Xpress need help with
- Chinese (All dialects)
- What do you speak??
If you have a different language that you would like to support, give me a shout, and I can help get you started.
