OAuth 2 is the gold standard for authentication in APIs and in this talk we'll take a deep dive into how it works and how to implement an OAuth 2 server in your API. There are a number of work flows in OAuth 2 for different scenarios including mobile apps and websites connecting via JavaScript, so I will discuss each one and show you how to implement it. We'll also look how to use JWT which can provide performance improvements. By the end, you'll be well equipped to add OAuth2 to your API.

Rob's British accent made a painful topic so much easier to deal with. Rob brought fantastic examples and tons of information to help people understand how to fully utilize OAuth2 in a production API environment.

Rob had many excellent code examples to teach how to use OAuth2. He had clean slides, a good presentation of the topic, had good flow, and referenced helpful libraries. Great talk that made understanding OAuth2 clear while also providing helpful examples.

I've worked before implementing an Oauth server before, but with this topic helped me clear out all doubts I had before. Thanks Rob

Fantastic presentation with great detail and great examples. Content was fantastic! My only recommendation would be to speak a little louder, sometimes your voice went a little under your breath.

Really great talk Rob! Thank you for demystifying how to actually use OAuth2. Your talk was clear and your code examples concise and easy to follow.

I enjoyed the talk. It was easy to consume the information since was well structured and supplied with code examples.
