If you ever had to deal with identity within your solutions then this is the workshop for you. Join JP and Christos to find out how to get started with authentication and authorization for your applications using the Microsoft Identity platform.
We will show you how to set up your Identity Provider in Azure and then use our libraries with your favorite language to quickly connect and authenticate users in a few, basic steps. At the end of this workshop, you will be able to use the Microsoft Identity Platform to create scalable and secure applications.
