Web Applications and the Rules They Live By
Time 04/22/08 04:30PM-05:30PM
Collaborations increasingly involve participants from multiple institutions and collections of web-based applications to address the needs of their community. Wikis, blogs, photo sharing, reference managers, and home grown web applications combine to complete the on-line toolbox. Shibboleth is among the most promising solutions to integrate web applications into a common identity and attribute framework. What rules should an application follow to fit into this integrated landscape? What do you do when your application doesn't know the rules? And how do you manage the groups and permissions for all these web applications so they act as a unified collaboration suite? Join us for an overview of emerging developer best practices, work arounds, and management interfaces to help cope with our new on-line paradise.
