A Developer's Guide to SCIM // Oktane21

April 7, 2021

SCIM (pronounced "skim") is a well-designed standard that defines a RESTful API for managing users. Every cloud service that has businesses as customers will eventually need to write an API that allows their customers to manage user accounts. Before SCIM, every service implemented this type of API in a slightly different way, which made interoperability difficult. In this software developer-focused talk, you'll learn why you should never write your own user management API again and use SCIM instead. You'll also learn what you'll need to consider before implementing SCIM and see a live-coded demonstration implementing a SCIM server in Python.
