About this event

GDI Detroit is excited to partner with Mark Stanislav of Duo Security in offering this free workshop to the developer community.

Just a few years ago, it was rare for end-users and developers to know about two-factor authentication. With implementations by big names such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Dropbox, two-factor authentication is now being used by all sorts of users and not just enterprise and government employees. With increasing pressure to prevent stolen passwords from allowing security breaches to occur, small and large businesses alike are quickly moving to integrate and deploy two-factor solutions.

This workshop will provide insight into what two-factor authentication is, how it works, who uses it, and how to implement it. By leveraging both WebSDK libraries and a REST API, attendees will be able to leave the class having actually integrated two-factor authentication into sample web applications.

If you have wanted to learn about this in-demand technology or have a need to be able to build two-factor into your company's web applications, this class will get you on a path to success. Participants are highly encouraged to have experience building web applications (Ruby and PHP will be discussed) and a working knowledge of information security.

Lunch will be provided by Duo Security.
