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:
(navigate slides with cursor left and right, go through bullet points with up and down and toggle notes with “n”)
If you want to know more about BrowserID, here are some resources:
- BrowserID.org – for all information about it
- The BrowserID field guide (work in progress)
- The PHP code example on HitHub
