  • Blog Post: Speaking @… PDC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yesterday we released the list of sessions for PDC2010. I am dazzled to be finally be able to say it: I have the honor to be the speaker for the identity breakout session!

  • Blog Post: Windows Identity Foundation Overview Session recording: drawing-on-slides presentation technique

    In the same spirit of experimentation shown here , in the last year I’ve been using another fairly original presentation technique. The original aim was to mitigate my being chronically late in turning in slides for events but it turned out something that audiences actually like :-). The technique is...
  • Blog Post: Update on Windows Azure + Windows Identity Foundation

    New Guide Back in August we released a guide that explained how to use WIF for adding to your web role SSO and claims-based identity capabilities via WS-Federation. That guide contained a number of workarounds that were made necessary by the limitations of the bits publicly available back then. A lot...
  • Blog Post: [funny] Stolen Identity Video

    PDC is slowly wrapping up, and it has been an awesome one. Identity was all over the place, and the interest you guys have show for the topic makes the months of behind-the-scenes hard work well worth it! Before resuming the “serious” steams of news around the content (there’s more to come!), let me...

    Yes, you read it right :-) Tomorrow at 1:00pm PST Stuart Kwan and I will appear LIVE on the new unscripted broadcast that the Channel9 guys are doing from the PDC floor; we are going to be grilled by Scott Hanselman , who presumably will want to know everything about Identity!

  • Blog Post: Enjoyed TailSpin demo in today’s PDC09 keynote? Get it now!

    Few hours ago Cameron Skinner and Doug Purdy were featured in Bob Muglia’s keynote. They showed great demos, where identity played a no-drama role: Cameron used WIF and ADFSv2 for enhancing SSO capabilities to his MVC application, Doug benefitted by that decision when he didn’t have to worry about authentication...
  • Blog Post: Windows Identity Foundation RTM!

    Hello from PDC09 Day 1 keynote! It is my pleasure to let you know that Bob Muglia just announced the general availability of Windows Identity Foundation . Get it while it’s hot !

  • Blog Post: The New ACS is Live: if you do HTTP, you can play the Game

    Today the .NET Services team released the first CTP that reflects the changes announced back in September : you can read about it in their team blog and in Justin’s blog and experiment with the service here .

  • Blog Post: TechEd Europe & PDC

      November is already here: can you believe it? The last few months have been a crescendo of activities, and now that PDC is just behind the corner they just turned in a tornado (alliterating in English is, well, weird ). I can’t really tell you all we’ve been cooking for your identity geeks out...

  • Blog Post: Video Interviews on Geneva, on the book and belated “sneak peek” on PDC identity sessions

    In the last few months I ended up on the wrong side of a camera a few number of times, but I was far too busy with the other deliverables to track when and where the results were going to be published. Now the videos are probably a bit out of context, but for completeness I’ll list them anyway. In reverse...
  • Blog Post: Kim shares the "Identity Roadmap for Software + Services " PDC presentation on his blog

    You know, I don't watch videos too often. I absolutely love them, but the level of attention they require is something that I rarely have the luxury of conceding: plus I really miss many things that I can easily get when reading text, such as varying the speed & depth or full text search. If you...
