DevLink 2014 Presentations

Last week I had the privilege to speak at DevLink in Chattanooga, TN.  I had a great time!  It was fun to present.  I was also was able to attend some great sessions.  DevLink is always a top notch event to attend.

Windows Azure and Identity – That Conference 2013

Earlier this week I had the fortune to present at That Conference.  That Conference is a fantastic community organized tech conference held each August at the massive Kalahari resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI.  It’s a relatively cheap event to attend, and is stacked with fantastic speakers from across the country, and some of the most passionate developers you’ll meet.

My session this year was entitled “Using Windows Azure for Solving Identity Management Challenges”.  I wanted to cover some of the different identity options one has when migrating applications to Windows Azure.  We covered features such as Mobile Services, Access Control Services (ACS), and Windows Azure Active Directory.  Most of the presentation focused on Windows Azure AD, and how to sync on-premises Active Directory with Windows Azure AD.

Below are the slides for my presentation.  Enjoy!
