Why these guys? Well, Alex until recently was working at the University of Lincoln where they did a whole bunch of OAuth 2 work as auth for various API projects at the university. During this time he created the fully spec compliant CodeIgniter OAuth 2.0 Server, which was later replaced with a new generic PHP version for “The League of Extraordinary Packages”. It’s safe to say that Alex knows his shit when it comes to OAuth.
On Tuesday I presented at the first ever PHP North East conference in Newcastle. Hosted in the fantastic Tyneside Cinema (which is the last surviving Newsreel theatre still operating as a cinema full-time in the UK), it was a very well organised event and I’m incredibly grateful to the PHP North East group for accepting my talk proposal.
My topic was “API driven development: Eating your own dog food”, I’ve embedded my slides below:
Unfortunately they weren’t able to video my talk so my slides may seem a little out of context but hopefully you can get the overall gist of what I talked about.
Once again, I’d like to say thank you to Anthony Sterling and the PHPNE crew for putting on a wonderful event.
Eran Hammer – the former OAuth 2.0 specification editor – recently spoke at RealtimeConf about why he left the working group and what he perceives to be the main problems with OAuth 2.0.
Yesterday I travelled to Birmingham for a JISC AIM programme meeting at the beautiful Aston University campus.
I presented a short talk about the Linkey project. My slides are embedded below. Note, I don’t really like very “wordy” presentation slides so I keep them simple, however you should be able to get the gist of the talk 🙂
