The OpenSSO Docs Wiki Heats Up

If you haven't visited the OpenSSO Resource Center lately, go have a look. My colleagues on the docs team have been doing a fantastic job of posting high quality information there. The site gets richer and richer every day.

Today, the site hit the mother lode when Gina from the OpenSSO writers team exposed a wealth of troubleshooting tips and FAQs based on support cases on the Community Contributions page of the Resource Center. Together with the How To's and White Papers already present on the page, this makes for extremely interesting reading.

I gotta say, I love working on a technology that has this quality and quantity of informaton available out in the open.

OpenSSO Instructor-Led Training is Now Available

The OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0: Deployment Essentials course - which I developed last winter - is now available as an instructor-led class from Sun. The Sun course code for this class is AM-3800.

Classes have started to appear on the Sun US training calendar and to other Sun training calendars around the world. More classes will be added to the calendars in the very near future.

In this course, you build up a complex OpenSSO deployment - complete with SSL, multiple web containers, and session failover. Then you use that deployment to exploit OpenSSO capabilities like authentication, authorization, customization, and audit logging. At the end of the week, you deploy a simpler federated identity environment and enable SAML 2 and fedlets.

One of the really nice things that happened during course development was that I was able to get a great set of beta testers from the OpenSSO community. I ran a live class in San Francisco, with people from the community, and held a number of remote trials with other community members. So like everything with OpenSSO, it really was a community effort.
