Two weeks ago, I was in the mist of Half Moon Bay, attending the ForgeRock Identity Summit. This is the 3rd conference in the US and each year, the event becomes bigger, nicer and better. The location itself was amazing, sitting on the edge of the Pacific ocean, rocked (or lulled?) by the sounds of the waves.
On the day before the main conference, we hosted a ForgeRock User Group, very well attended and had the opportunity to exchange with our customers, future customers and users about our product directions, and their experiences deploying the products. I’d like to thank the attendees for the great discussions, the sharing, and the excellent feedbacks that are definitely going to translate into product features and enhancements.
I was planning on writing a summary of the conference, but my coworkers did such a good job at it, that I encourage you to read their recap of Day 1 and recap of Day 2. So I leave you with my usual visual summary of the ForgeRock Identity Summit 2015, and all the photos that I’ve taken during the event.
Thanks to Chris Lee, the most recent technical writer at ForgeRock, there is now a new visual design for the snapshot documentation for our open source projects.
Check it out on the OpenDJ Administration Guide, the OpenDJ SDK Developer’s Guide, the OpenIDM Integrator’s Guide or the Guide to OpenIG…
Earlier this week, a new major version of ForgeRock Community site was pushed to production.
Beside a cleaner look and feel and a long awaited reorganisation of content, the new version enables better collaboration around the open source projects and initiatives. You will find Forums, for general discussions or project specific ones, new Groups around specific topics like UMA or IoT. We’ve also added a calendar with different views, so that you can find or suggest events, conferences, webinars touching the projects and IRM at large.
Great work Aron and Marius for the new ForgeRock.org site ! Thank you.
And we’ve also announced a new project OpenUMA. If you haven’t paid attention to it yet, I suggest you do now. User-Managed Access (UMA) is an OAuth-based protocol that enables an individual to control the authorization of data sharing and service access made by others. The OpenUMA community shares an interest in informing, improving, and extending the development of UMA-compatible open-source software as part of ForgeRock’s Open Identity Stack.
Time is running fast and the ForgeRock Open Identity Summit is just around the corner.
For those who haven’t registered yet, I believe that there are still a few spots available : http://forgerock.com/summit/.
For the other ones, I’m looking forward to see you next week, in sunny and beautiful Pacific Grove.
Thanks to all the developers from our open source projects and communities, all the customers and friends that attended the party that ForgeRock threw yesterday on the side of the JavaOne conference. We had lots of fun seeing you, discussing and raising toast to the good old times or to the great futures.
A special thanks as well to James Gosling, father of the Java programming language and supporter of ForgeRock, for showing up and raising the level of the party to an All Stars game !
You can find the photo album of the party on Facebook.
Yesterday, as I was entering the conference room for our Open Source Identity and Access Management expert panel session at JavaOne, I noticed all JDuchesses were gathering in the corner for a group photo. As I had my camera with me, I quickly took it out and captured the moment.
