Niraj Bhatt has just published a new course: Windows Identity Foundation Patterns: On-Premise and Cloud
Dealing with multiple identities has always been challenging; even more so with the advent of the cloud. Developers and architects are often confused by the numerous terms, acronyms and buzzwords – such as Active/Passive Federation, SWT, SAML, ADFS, WIF, WS-Trust, WS-Federation, OAuth, OAuth WRAP and others. Niraj begins his course by distilling the technology jargon; setting the foundation for understanding various identity solutions. Having laid the foundation, he then focuses on typical claims-based identity solution patterns within enterprises. Understanding these recurring implementation themes will further simply the mapping of claims-based identity to your LOB applications.
Our library has grown to over 300 courses and almost 1000 hours of content, which means if you spent 8 hours a day watching Pluralsight courses it would take you nearly 6 months to watch the entire library. Of course we wouldn’t stop publishing courses while you watched, so by the time you finished, you’d have another 100+ courses to watch!

1. Hire small.
Small teams are generally more efficient than large teams, and they are easier to manage too. Communication is easier with less people on a team (it’s a smaller graph with less edges), and each person will be making more of a contribution, which is great for their morale plus each will connect with more of the code base. As Ron Jeffries wrote, “I’m not afraid to change my own code. And it’s all my own code.”
