Learn from Justin Arbuckle, Chef VP of Transformation, how to transform enterprise IT for speed, scale, and consistency. Justin discusses the culture and technologies essential for getting great products in the hands of customers—faster. He relays how, by measuring the velocity of product development from ideation to production, we can pinpoint and address the cultural roadblocks that are stalling progress. He also promotes an intriguing new approach to project estimation: target what can be developed in two weeks versus focusing on how long an entire project will take. Justin next elaborates on how Chef products—along with open source community contributions—can speed and support the DevOps process, providing automation and workflow tools to manage application code, infrastructure code, and compliance in any environment.
Authentication and Authorisation can be tricky, with many different methods of performing similar tasks and it can be hard to figure out what's best for your projects. It gets even trickier when you start thinking about how to authorise cross platform applications including web and apps (and now with Xamarin thrown in, it's even murkier!). Throw in WebAPI2 on the other side and it's starting to become unclear how to make a great experience for developers and end users alike. In this session Jordan will demonstrate how to build a centralised authentication system that supports web and apps, passing claims around all over the place using Json Web Tokens ending up in a WebAPI2 based API site. The session will investigate a range of concepts from web to app to API, including best practices, Autofac powered filters, OWIN and other cool concepts that your services need!
