AzureFunBytes – Microsoft Identity with Christos Matskas!

Jay Gordon

AzureFunBytes is a weekly opportunity to learn more about the fundamentals and foundations that make up Azure. It’s a chance for me to understand more about what people across the Azure organization do and how they do it. Every week we get together at 11 AM Pacific / 2 PM Eastern on Microsoft LearnTV and learn more about Azure.

This week I welcomed Christos Matskas, Program Manager at Microsoft, to the show. We have discussed Identity before, but we’ll get a great look into authentication, authorization, and Azure AD. Christos helps us understand how we can bridge the gap between our on-prem and Azure solutions for access management to ensure a great experience for developers. We chat about the importance of multi-factor authentication and conditional access. We will discuss implementation in JavaScript and .NET apps to ensure all you developers get the most out of this session.

Be sure you check out Christos’ Twitch Show, The 425 Show and Discord.

Our Agenda:
* What is Microsoft Identity?
* Why should devs not manage their own user databases!
