SnowCamp.io 2018

2017-sticker_peppercarrot_snowcamp2018_exportI’m one of the organisers of a developers’ conference here in Grenoble, France, the SnowCamp. The 3rd edition took place last week at Minatec. During 3 days, we hosted 10 University workshops, 40 presentations, 3 keynotes, and welcomed 375 attendees. And on the Saturday, we ran a smaller unconference with some of the speakers on the snowy slopes of Chamrousse, the closest ski resort to Grenoble.

It has been 4 very intense days, but I’m really happy with how smooth the event went, and I’m excited to help organising it again next year (no spoiler, but it should take place end of January 2019).

My photos of the event are on my Flickr account, but they are also aggregated with other photographers’ shots on the SnowCamp Flickr Album.

We have a new office…

ForgeRock France office buildingYes, the picture looks familiar for those who have already come to visited us. In fact, we haven’t changed address, we’ve just moved the ForgeRock Grenoble Engineering Center to a new office space, in the same building, doubling in size, building our lab in the facilities.

 
With now 23 employees based in the Grenoble area, the expansion was long due. We now have more space for everyone, more meeting rooms, a creative area with huge white board, and a dedicated kitchen area.

Last Thursday, Mike Ellis, ForgeRock CEO, and Jonathan Scudder, co-founder were in the office for the opening party.

We also had visitors from the Bristol engineering team, the Vancouver WA engineering team and the Czech republic ProfiQ team, truly showing our diversity and international presence.

I hope that we will continue to grow as we’ve been doing in these first 7 years… We have an amazing team and a great culture. Let’s keep rocking on!
Thanks to Bruno Lavit Photography for the photo coverage!

Additional photos of the office can be found on my Flickr account.

ForgeRock Trajectory…

frhqEarlier this week, ForgeRock announced an $88M series D funding, ahead of planned IPO.
I’ve been working with ForgeRock for 7 years, starting the first R&D engineering center in Grenoble, France, and building our Directory Services product. And I’m just amazed by the incredible journey we’ve accomplished since the beginning. I’m just thrilled to be part of this great adventure!

If you want to understand its foundation, take a look at this video with Mike Ellis, CEO and Steve Ferris, SVP Services and Founder.

ForgeRock Identity Live Events.

The ForgeRock 2017 Identity Live Summits are well underway but there are more to come in London (October 19) and Paris (November 21). Join us and register.

I was part of the Austin and the Dusseldorf ones in May. It’s a little late to make a summary of the events; you can find highlights, presentations on ForgeRock.com. But I thought I’d share photo albums of both events:
