It was a good opportunity to meet and discuss with our European customers (or the European teams of our global customers). For me, the main topic of discussion was Kubernetes and running Directory Services in Docker/K8S. It was also something that I’ve discussed a little bit during the Nashville Identity Live, but not as much as I did in Berlin. I also did a talk on that subject at the Identity Live Cloud Workshop (the second day of the event is focusing on the technical aspects of our products and solutions). I’ve started to write another article to detail my talk. I hope to publish it here in the next few days. Meanwhile, you can find all the photos from Identity Live Berlin on my Flickr page as usual.
Note that Identity Live Berlin took place at the “Classic Remise” which is a showroom for old and sports cars. An unusual place for a conference, but a good opportunity to admire some pretty old cars and try to take a different kind of photos.
This was my first visit to the city of Country Music and honky-tonks. It was fun listening to the live music everywhere, trying (and buying) boots, visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame, although we didn’t really have much time for leisure.
The Identity Live event itself was really good and very well attended. The engagement of our Customers and Partners was great and we’ve had a myriad of discussions, feedbacks and questions about our products, our roadmap and our progress on our move to the Cloud.
This was my first participation to the events in this region (somehow I managed to convince my family to move our vacation earlier so I could attend), and it was great meeting in person with many customers and prospects I’ve interacted with over the phone, as well as meeting the ForgeRock colleagues I hadn’t seen for a while. As usual, the conversations around our products and the customers solutions were very rich and open, and I came back with great inputs and confirmations for our roadmaps.
You can find my photos of the events in the following Flickr albums:
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.

Last Sunday, ForgeRock team participated in the Ekiden, a marathon organized in Grenoble, in favor of various charities, including the “Papillons de Charcot” (literally Charcot’s butterflies, to help people with Charcot’s disease).
The race is a marathon, but run as a relay of 6 persons respectively running 5km, 10km, 5km, 10km, 5km and 7.195km).
The ForgeRock team did great and finished in 3 h 28 min and 6 secs. Congrats to the team and we’re looking forward to next year edition, see if we can register 2 teams.
I’m back after a late summer break spent across 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.
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.
Je serai présent avec notre équipe au SIdO, l’événement 100% dédié à l’Internet des Objets qui aura lieu à Lyon les 7 et 8 Avril 2015.
