DevConf.in 2018 is the second annual Developers’ Conference to be organized by Red Hat in Bengaluru, India. It is meant to provide a platform to the local FOSS community participants to come together and engage in the knowledge sharing through technical talks, workshops, panel discussions, hackathon, and such activities.
More about my talk and conference can be found here;
Our goal is to promote and educate people about authentication & authorization. Also, learn about the different concepts JS and how that make up an application secure.
As usual this time also, at end moment I’ve decided to attend this conference and since this conference is organized by Red Hat so I was quite excited to speak here. DevConf first time happening in India. This conference originally started on 10 September 2009, this was the first ever conference organized by Red Hat Czech Republic in the Czech Republic and the rest is history.
Due to flight delayed I reached the hotel late at night and was too tired but there some points left to add in the presentation. I was actually preparing some demos which I wanted to demonstrate to participants. Even after so much tired the energy level was same, thanks to Red Bull as well to keep me awake. 😀
I have talked on “JS Authentication with Auth0“. This was introductory talk about the JS Authentication, where we have discussed the role that Auth0 authentication plays in modern software development where it is a lot more than just the login screen.

First, we gave a bit of background that Authentication and Authorization are two different processes. This time Viral Parmar who is a cybersecurity expert in his region join me for this session and shared some great trips to about online security.
We have also covered the following points in the talk;
- web security
- Passwordless authentication
- How to use Auth0 as authentication
- Brute force
At the end of the talk, we have received so many questions but mostly on SSO as participants are quite curious to know more about. Some were working professionals and there were asking about how they implement SSO on their business set up so all an all it was quite a healthy discussion. Some questions we have answered them after wrap up and over a cup of coffee in break session.
Also, while walking to booth sections got a chance to interact with many participants from the conference, some were known faces who attended our talk and some came up with new questions. This is the best part of being in the community where you will get a chance to exchange your knowledge and you always go back home with some new learning or experience.
