Sydney Identity Summit & Unconference Snapshots

Last week marked the first Identity Summit and Unconference in Sydney. A big thank you to our phenomenal speakers, sponsors and attendees for making the events such a success. We've been collecting and publishing highlights on Facebook and Twitter, so wanted to share with you something of a timeline of the two memorable days. What follows below is a Storify collection of photos and Tweets where you can revisit your favourite moments.

The Sydney Identity Unconference, in particular, was the second event of its kind that we've run at ForgeRock and we're getting unanimous feedback that these kinds of informal learning and sharing days are exactly what our customers, partners and the identity community value most. Having the opportunity to get hands-on advice from our product and subject matter experts - which is exactly what the unconference format is designed to support - provides immediate and measurable impact for the identity professionals in the ForgeRock community.

With the backdrop of Sydney Harbour, the day kicked off with Daniel Raskin, SVP Product Management at ForgeRock, opening the event and sharing an update on the new capabilities released only a few weeks earlier as part of the ForgeRock Identity Platform Mid-Year Release 2016. In true Unconference style, as a team, the agenda was built and the discussions were underway! Throughout the day a number of in-depth technical sessions were held, ranging in topics from User-Managed Access, DevOps, Stateless Sessions, Mobile Push Authentication, Privacy and Consent, Cloud Readiness and Microservices 'Funfest' - to name a few!

Many thanks to everyone who made both the Sydney Identity Summit and Unconference a smashing success! In particular we’d like to recognise our Platinum sponsor Accenture, Gold sponsor Deloitte and Silver sponsor Aurionpro for their efforts and support.
