Open Solutions Alliance SSO Hack-a-thon Tutorial

Track: People
Date: Tuesday, July 24
Time: 1:30pm - 5:00pm
Location: E146

The Open Solutions Alliance (OSA) was formed to speed the creation and adoption of integrated, interoperable open solutions for business customers.  To encourage community participation in support of this goal, the OSA is sponsoring a series of interoperability "hack-a-thons," , each one focusing on a specific interoperability topic of concern to customers today.

The first hack-a-thon will be at OSCON 2007, and will focus on single sign on (SSO).

This Tuesday tutorial will precede the hack-a-thon gatherings on Wednesday and Thursday. Tutorial attendance is desirable but not mandatory. An engineer from an OSA member organization and other OSA members will be available to help attendees. Software on CD-ROM and other media will be available at the tutorial. This will be a good time for participants to provide feedback and requests for enhancement.
