Allan Foster, VP Global Partner Enablement, master of ceremony of the 2016 San Francisco UnSummit.

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.

Back from vacation

I’m back after a late summer break spent across France.  Sunset in North of France

Now it’s back to business full speed, to finish and deliver new major releases of our products by the end of the year.

I will also be traveling and attending a few events. The closer will be “Les Assises de la Sécurité” in Monaco, at the end of the month. If you’re attending the event, drop me a note. I’ll be happy to meet with you and discuss our products and solutions.

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.

Why I love my job !

At ForgeRock, I have multiple reasons to enjoy what I do. I have the responsibility for two products: OpenDJ, the LDAP directory services and OpenIG the Identity Gateway, and I also manages the French subsidiary. But what really gets me excited in the morning is that I get to work with very smart and passionate people!

Jean-Noël, one of the engineers of the OpenDJ development team, has a passion for beautiful code and AlpesJuggyTranshe loves refactoring, cleaning existing code. On his personal time, he started to automate his process in Eclipse, and then turn it into an Eclipse plugin, and finally made the code available as an open source project: AutoRefactor. Now, in the office, most of the engineers using Eclipse are also using the AutoRefactor plugin.

So when Jean-Noël got to present his work at our local Java User Group (the AlpesJUG), the rest of the team went along and supported him. As one of the other engineers has a passion for photography (which I share), it gives this amazing picture gallery and set of souvenirs for everyone:

PS: It also helps that we are working in a great environment where we can afford to do this⬇︎ (sometime to time) during our lunch break!
