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:

On March 2nd, ForgeRock will be hosting an UnSummit, a  free and open to all event, in Bristol.  In an “unconference” format, join us in the ForgeRock’s Bristol offices at Queen’s Square, for a day of discussions, presentations with users, deployers and developers of the ForgeRock Identity Platform.

 

Top 5 reasons why you (or your team) should join us?

  1. It’s a day for techie’s and nothing like a regular conference
  2. If you’re interested in identity or working on an identity project – it’s a must!
  3. There will be 30+ sessions to choose from during the day
  4. It’s a great opportunity to visit Bristol – one of Britain’s leading “Smart Cities”
  5. It’s complimentary so no charge to attend

You can register and find  more details on the ForgeRock website. And if you’re still hesitating, please check what TechSpark wrote about the coming UnSummit.

I’ll be attending the UnSummit and hope to see you there.
