Inversoft’s founder and CEO, Brian Pontarelli, will be speaking on Authentication as a Micro-Service at Code Talent.

Authentication is a core piece of many applications. However, it has traditionally been handled in a monolithic manner. Moving to micro-services means that applications now need to decouple authentication, user management and user data.

What we’ll cover at the meetup:

  • Most common pitfalls of authentication and authorization as a microservice
  • How to break apart your architecture and build services for user management features
  • Portable user identity tokens

Date: Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Time: 6:00PM (MST)

Location:
Code Talent
2980 Larimer St.
Denver, CO

This meetup is free to attend and food will be provided by Pivotal. RSVP here.

We hope to see you there! Please pass along the link to any of your colleagues who might be interested in attending the event as well.
