OAuth 2.0 Deconstructed

Start a watch party

Peter Jang

OAuth is an authorization standard that is both powerful and daunting to learn. Higher level libraries like OmniAuth can ease the process of implementing OAuth, but it can be difficult to debug or customize the code without first understanding OAuth at a lower level.

This workshop breaks down the OAuth standard from the very basic principles, covering the terminology in an easy to digest fashion. It goes over step-by-step code examples to implement OAuth from scratch for several providers, so you get the repetition necessary to work with OAuth on your own at any level of abstraction.
