What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
During this talk we will have the fantastic Shaun Lawrence - Microsoft MVP working with Xamarin and MAUI talking about his experience building a game in MAUI.
Find out what happened when 2 of his passions were combined together; his job and his passion, video games.
Last year he underwent a journey to build a mobile game with Xamarin-Forms. It was successful but he didn't feel it pushed the boundaries far enough and wanted a bigger challenge! Now, with .NET MAUI out, it is the perfect opportunity to take it further. Making use of the .NET MAUI cross-platform framework he will take you through the journey to building a fully fledged game with the framework and then talk around the resulting engine that is being built and can enable you to build your great idea!
We will look over:-
- Common concepts in what is a typical game
- How those have been built through the use of .NET MAUI Graphics
- How we can find the best mix of .NET MAUI and our new Orbit game-engine
.Net South West is back for another in-person Meet Up, with Dee Bolt, who is giving his talk 'What the JWT?! Securing your app with Microsoft Identity Web'.
This will be on Tuesday 9th August at Huboo's office, 41 Corn Street, Bristol, BS1 1HT. We will look to get started on pizzas and beers/refreshments for 6:30pm and the talk starting at 7pm.
Whether it's a desktop, mobile, or web application, it is likely that you've had to secure your application to authenticated users.
Traditionally, this was left to identity experts who knew the ins and outs of Open ID Connect (OIDC), OAuth, SAML, and generally were excited for the next published RFC. However now it is easier than ever for developers to secure their systems with a few lines of code and some configuration.
In this session, we will explore and demonstrate how easy Microsoft has made securing your application against Azure AD, and Azure AD B2C using the Microsoft Identity Web C# SDK.
After this session, you'll be able to get started with your authentication journey and understand, in general, how authentication works.
#### External Identity & IAM Consultant

Prior to the identity ecosystem, I was a development consultant in travel and tourism (mainly C#) and a software and database analyst for a training company. My main skillset is around system architecture, identity, C#, and SQL.
Other community contributions include the Azure Technical Contributor Program and Microsoft sponsored Identity discord channel.
