Virtual Talk & Demos: Systems thinking for authorization

Let us know if you'd like to hear about our next event!

Opinionated AND Flexible

As programmers, many of us got indoctrinated into ideas like “Convention over Configuration” and “Provide Sharp Knives” early on. But authorization – a problem as old as software and one that’s core to no one’s domain – is still anything but magical.

Graham Neray (cofounder/CEO of Oso) is on an epic quest for programmable authorization, and thinks we can learn a thing or two from web frameworks when building authorization systems.

During this tech talk, Graham will covered:
- Why an authorization system needs to be opinionated but flexible
- Why it’s a tricky balance to achieve
- And what happens if you get it right

We also had:
- A Polar policy puzzle led by Product Leader, Jed Gresham
- A demo on Oso Cloud by Sam Scott
- A demo by Oso engineer, Jesse Lax
- And a Q&A session

It was great having you there 🐻.
