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.

The new ForgeRock Community site

Earlier this week, a new major version of ForgeRock Community site was pushed to production.

ForgeRock.org

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.

Venn Of Authorization with UMAAnd 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.
