I've been back from Tokyo for a couple of weeks now and just realized that I haven't posted slides from my presentation on OpenSSO, so here they are [PDF]. Many thanks to the Liberty Alliance Japan SIG for organizing this day - about 220 attendees heard the latest Liberty Alliance news, many of them stopping by my booth afterwards to see OpenSSO in action. Special shouts to Takashi and Tatsuo for making me so welcome in Tokyo, as always. Via Tatsuo, here are some pics from our excursion on the last night there - I'm the balding caucasian guy in the blue t-shirt
Moving on... the preso at TriLUG last night - 'Digital Identity from LDAP to SAML and Beyond' - went well - about 60 or so very technical attendees. When I asked how many people in the audience did NOT understand sequence diagrams, only a couple of hands went up, and I breathed a sigh of relief as I explained the basics.
A BIG thankyou to Andy Oliver and the rest of TriLUG for the invitation to speak - it's a pleasure to talk to a well-informed, interested audience who are there by choice, not because it's their job . As promised, here are the slides [PDF]. There should be some video at some point too; I'll update this blog entry when it appears.
UPDATE - ogg and mp3 audio available. Listen to my voice gradually die due to the cold I'm suffering.
UPDATE 2 - thanks to Rich for the photo, and for providing accommodation at Pixelfodder Towers for the whole Patterson clan
UPDATE 3 - thanks to Takayuki for the photos from the Liberty Tokyo event. Here's a nice one of Tatsuo and me.
So - where next? IIW2007b in Mountain View, December 3-5, then Javapolis, in Antwerp, December 10-14. That'll be about it for 2007. Hopefully.
