UPDATE (March 7): Following our post two weeks ago, this event sold out almost immediately. To accommodate more people, the event has been moved to a larger room at Microsoft’s offices in London. For more details on agenda, speakers, location, and registration, please visit the event site.


The OpenID Foundation is hosting an OpenID workshop on March 28th that will be located at Google’s London office (UPDATE: moved to Microsoft’s London office). Google uses OpenID in a number of its services, and is a corporate member of the OpenID Foundation. The OpenID Foundation runs a series of workshops like this one for business decision makers, as well as running other OpenID summits that are more technical.

The event is for the owners of consumer websites and enterprise SaaS services to discuss how to improve login systems by using techniques such as OAuth, OpenID and an Account Chooser.

Please join us in London on Wednesday, March 28th, 2012 from 10:00 until 17:30 GMT. For more details on agenda, speakers, location, and registration, visit the event site.

In addition to the OpenID workshop, there is a similar event the previous day on identity security best practices, hosted by Ping Identity and sponsored by Google.


Eric Sachs has been a product manager at Google since 2003. He is now involved with industry efforts to increase adoption of Internet Identity standards including OAuth and OpenID.
