BrowserID at the London Ajax meetup

Yesterday at the London Ajax Meetup I spoke about “Rethinking User Registration with BrowserID”. In the (roughly) half hour talk I covered the need for new login systems on the web, what is broken now, how BrowserID is a solution for these issues and showed how easy it is to create a BrowserID login (both from a developer and from a user point of view).

The video of the talk can be seen on the Skillsmatter website (HD on and fullscreen is your friend as the embedded version is a bit small).

The slides are online and embedded here:

    I just wanted to thank you, I watched this presentation 3 days ago, whilst skipping out on my revision, and today my exam asked me to compare 2 single sign-in systems of my choice. I have a feeling that picking one the lecturer didn’t discuss in the lectures will be worth some extra marks, as will the technical detail I went into.

    So thanks for helping me write a brilliant answer to one of the trickier questions in the exam, really lightened my mood :).

    Needless to say, the technology looks great and the presentation was interesting, otherwise I wouldn’t have watched it and remembered it.
