There are conferences and there are Conferences. The Conferences are the ones that you remember, because they happened in unusual places, because they’ve had a different atmosphere, you’ve met lots of friendly and bright persons. They are the ones you leave with the satisfaction of having learned something, having received value, and you’re looking forward to come back next year.
The IRM Summit is one of these Conferences. The next European IRM Summit is taking place in November, 3 – 5, near Dublin, Ireland, at the Powerscourt Estate pictured here. It’s a 2 days event where you can learn and discuss about the Identity Relationship Management space, standards, platforms, solutions…There will be many presentations, demos, trainings, plenty of time for discussions and meetings, a free half day Kantara Initiative workshop around “Trusted IDentity Exchange (TIDX)”, and some fun. I can already hear the fiddle, the pipes, the harp and smell the Guinness ! And I hope the weather will let us enjoy the wonderful garden.
Check out the agenda and the list of speakers, and don’t wait until last minute to register. While there are hundreds of rooms available, they are still counted and limited. Last year’s summit was sold out !
I’m looking forward to see you in beautiful Ireland !
Join us for the Open Identity Stack Summit Europe, on 14-16 October 2013 at the Domaine de Béhoust, France.
We will be gathering at ForgeRock’s luxe Chateau, Domaine de Béhoust (just outside Paris), where our Open Identity Stack community will delve into OpenAM, OpenIDM, and OpenDJ best practices, use cases, how-tos, and more.
We’ve been saying for a long time that identity & access management (IAM) must be reconstructed to adapt to today’s problems. Modern APIs, standards, scale, speed, and modular architecture are all needed for successful modern IAM deployments. The agenda will include dynamic working sessions addressing the latest IAM developments, including mobility, identity bridge, and customer case studies.
If you want to get a feel of the atmosphere of the conference, check the photo album from the first ForgeRock Open Identity Summit or get a glimpse at the skills of one of our keynote speakers : I hope to see you at ForgeRock’s chateau in October !
The OpenDJ Administration, Maintenance and Tuning (FR-462) training is taking place in Paris from Tuesday January 24th to Friday January 27th 2012.
The course is mix of lecture and labs and is designed for system administrators, integrators, consultants, architects and developers that will be installing, configuring, administering and maintaining ForgeRock OpenDJ LDAP directory server. I’ve been reviewing the course materials, and I must say I’m really excited by it. The amount of information available in the materials is huge, and the hands-on exercises are very detailed and practical.
The training is definitely a must for anyone who is or will be deploying and managing OpenDJ. And as this is the first training for OpenDJ in Europe, I will be attending it as an observer, gathering feedback on both product and course, also possibly as an assistant to the trainer Bill Nelson.
The session will be hosted in Astec training facilities, right in the heart of Paris, close to Gare Saint Lazare and Boulevard Haussmann.
