OAuth, a community-driven open standard was designed to address sharing of resources between services while maintaining full user ownership and privacy. As more companies implement OAuth and more developers get to interact with resources secured by it, we are starting to see new patterns and needs for moving OAuth forward.
With that in mind Yahoo! is hosting the first OAuth Summit. The event will take place June 26th at Yahoo!’s Santa Clara, CA campus and will include many of the OAuth community leaders – both individuals and companies. The event will focus on moving the specification forward and is expected to be highly technical. Participants are expected to have a solid understanding of the protocol in order to maximize our time together.
