Tokens are widely used to identify resources and try to add some security to insecure environments, but sometimes the management of those identifiers can get a bit complex - even more on distributed systems. What if we could have an intelligent token, one that simplifies the way things works without losing integrity or security?
In this talk we present Json Web Tokens as an alternative for smart and self contained tokens, explaining how to use each claim and giving some common use cases.

Thanks for your great talk Luís! I liked the way you explained what JOSE means and everything that flows around there. The only thing that was missing is a few more examples. How to use the token? I remember that you showed how to use your package, that's a good thing, however the code example was way to complex. It would be nice if you show a simple example first and then expend on that.

Overall a good and solid talk! Keep it up ;)

I went into this talking thinking "it's just a token...".
I walked away from this talk thinking "that's one hell of a token!".

Luís had a clear explanation of what these tokens are and how they can be used, it's always nice to have someone speak from true experience and knowledge.

There were still a lot of "uhms" involved and definitely in the beginning it was a bit hard to follow because of this, later on in the talk when things started to get more technical there was much more of a flow and it was easier to follow.

Great talk :+1:

It was the first time for me that I heard about JSON web tokens.

This talk got me really interested in it's possibilities.

I loved the styling used you used in your slides.

The structure was easy to follow and the frequently asked questions at the end was a nice addition.
