I am really pleased to announce that we have an OpenID Informational Evening for Developers August 10th 6-9 in Berkeley at 2029 University, Upstairs.
The Big news is the community has converged and figured out the authentication layer - OpenID…OpenID is just the authentication layer - but on top of this ad hoc standard lots of cool stuff can happen. The goal of the evening is not to geek out on identity but to connect with a developers working on applications that require users to login.
Find out more about what it is…how it works…how you can install. The incentives to learn are high with the $5000 bounty for having OpenID in Open Source projects.
Presenting and answering Questions
David Recordon formerly of Live Journal/Six Apart now of Verisign will be presenting a bit about the origins of OpenID but most importantly how it works…and how you install it.
Andy Dale from ooTao will talk a bit about i-names and how they work with OpenID2 and looking forward to what comes next after authentication - profile sharing. ooTao is also data sharing are running ibroker services.
