Virtual Talk & Demos: Authorization for Your Inner Programmer

Wednesday, February 15, 2023
1:30 PM - 2:45 PM ET
Zoom info will be provided the
morning before the event

Opinionated AND Flexible

As programmers, many of us got indoctrinated into ideas like “Convention over Configuration” and “Provide Sharp Knives” early on. But authorization – a problem as old as software and one that’s core to no one’s domain – is still anything but magical.

Sam Scott (cofounder/CTO of Oso) is on an epic quest for programmable authorization, and thinks we can learn a thing or two from web frameworks when building authorization systems.

During this tech talk, Sam will explain:
- Why an authorization system needs to be opinionated but flexible
- Why it’s a tricky balance to achieve
- And what happens if you get it right.

He’ll also demo Oso Cloud, a batteries-included authorization system we’ve built for application authorization.
Stay for a technical Q&A, demos from Oso engineers, special swag, and a Polar policy puzzle (there will be prizes).
See you there 🐻.
