About

Identity & Access Control Lead at Rock Solid Knowledge, Pluralsight Author, and Speaker. I specialize in IdentityServer and all things Identity, OAuth, and OpenID Connect. I'm also a big fan of Azure.

I work mainly with C# and ASP.NET Core, creating identity solutions for both external customers and for commercial IdentityServer products. When not working with these technologies I dabble with languages such as Kotlin, Python, and Typescript.

I'm relatively new on the speaking circuit, but I'm finding it immensely enjoyable, whether it's user groups, conferences, or recorded mediums.

I've been leading small teams of developers on projects longer than I have been part of them. Whilst my wife knows how much this can stress me out, when projects get moving and the team pulls together, it makes it all worthwhile.

Contact

The best way to keep up to date with me is by following me on Twitter. Please also contact me here if you have an article request. If you're not a fan of twitter you can find me on most other social media platforms using the alias: scottbrady91.

Speaking

If you want to get in contact about speaking engagements, please email me at [email protected]. I usually speak about or run workshops on IdentityServer and OpenID Connect, however when Dom & Brock are hogging this topic I enjoy talking about ASP.NET Core, Azure, Docker, and OpenID Connect on other platforms. Travel & expenses are a minimum requirement (see Troy Hunt's article: 10 ways for a conference to upset their speakers) to offset my employer's loss of a resource.

Personal

I can look a little different up close as I have a condition called Vitiligo which has caused some pigmentless patches of skin on my face and hands. Luckily for me, I'm lily white anyway, but this condition affects a lot of people and can really affect someone's confidence and life.

The bride in the picture is my beautiful wife, Rachel, on our wedding day. I used to look down on people for using their wedding photos on their professional profiles, but I get it now. That was the best day of my life.

I initially started this site to document my learning of OpenID Connect and IdentityServer, however thanks to the early success of those articles, and later the job they earnt me, I now work full time with these technologies.

This site is self-created and is currently running ASP.NET Core hosted on Azure App Services. I use both its maintenance and articles as a learning tool for myself as much as anything else. The layout originally used a purchased theme but I have since gutted it, given it multiple redesigns, and converted the remaining assets into Sass.
