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.

LDAPCon 2015

22494196563_56cdbd5a6c_zTime flies… LDAPCon 2015 has happened and we all have returned from Edinburgh to our daily lives.

As for the previous editions, this year’s conference was well attended, very friendly, with plenty of time to socialize around a (few) pint(s) of beer.

23126811911_71434b0311_mDavid Goodman started the conference with a keynote presentation that illustrated the long path followed by LDAP, but also how important it still is in the major industries, especially in the Telco world.

My 2 presentations were given on the first day of the conference. The first one was about “LDAP Asynchronous Programming” and the Promises API we’ve added in the OpenDJ LDAP SDK.

The second presentation was an update on the OpenDJ project with a highlight on what is in the OpenDJ 3.0 release due mid December.

All of the presentations are already available through the web site, either in the Programme section, or directly in the Downloads section.

Thanks and kudos to this year’s organisers : Andrew Findlay and Stephen Quinney.

As usual, you can get a glimpse of the conference and people on my photo album.

My coworker Markus has published a detailed recap of the Summit, so I leave you with my usual picture gallery. Enjoy !

My views on ForgeRock Identity Summit

View of the ocean from Half Moon BayTwo 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.

ForgeRock User Group AttendeesOn 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.
