What we're about

We're a Bristol based user group, with talks and events aimed at .NET developers. If you're a developer in the South West then it would be great to see you at one of our get-togethers. This group will hopefully provide a forum / hub for Bristol's diverse and thriving developer community to exchange ideas and keep up to date with the latest movements and shifts in software development.

New members, from all backgrounds and whether you are a junior developer or the CEO of Microsoft, are always very welcome.

So, if you enjoy technology, software development, and would like to socialise with like-minded souls, come along to one of our events. Look forward to seeing you!

**Special Note for Recruiters**
We have 3 rules you must follow:
1) All recruiters in the .NET South West User Group must register with the leadership team. This can be done by sending an email to leadership@dotnetsouthwest.uk with their Company’s name, who from the company will be attending (if more than one person will come), and a photo of the persons coming (a link to their LinkedIn Account can be used if they have a good headshot as their profile picture).
2) Recruiters may come to our meetups but must stay for the talks as well. This shows respect for the craft we do.
3) Recruiters must be professional and polite with all of our members.

Failure to follow these rules can result in you and/or your company being banned/blacklisted from our meetups.

Virtual - API Security with OAuth2 and OpenID Connect in Depth with Kevin Dockx

About the Talk: You probably know how to secure your API with access tokens, but did you know you can use reference tokens to improve security? The token exchange standard for delegated access? A custom grant for API to API access? And what about improving client authentication for those use cases where clientid & client secret don't cut it anymore? In this in-depth session, we'll cover all of these topics, extensively using IdentityServer4 in the process. Note that some previous knowledge on OAuth2 and OpenID Connect is a must. About the Speaker: Kevin is a freelance solution architect, Pluralsight author & consultant, living in Antwerp (Belgium). These days he's mainly focused on RESTful architectures & application security. He's a Microsoft MVP, and a keen proponent of open-source software. Also: wine.
