After greater than 8 years at Kentor the time as come to maneuver on. I’m leaving Kentor and beginning my very own enterprise. I’ll proceed to work with identification and entry administration, particularly SAML2 on .NET. I’ll do consulting, open supply improvement and coaching, each on website and remotely. The Kentor.AuthServices undertaking will likely be transferred to my new firm, Sustainsys
I began at Kentor in April 2009. During these 8½ years I’ve learnt so much, advancing from being one of some hundred “Consultants” to turning into one among 30-something “Senior Consultants” and eventually turning into one among 4 “Chief Consultants” within the firm. During these years I’ve each had successes with the groups I’ve been a part of and skilled failures that I’ve learnt from. I’ve had the prospect to see a wide range of tasks, prospects and applied sciences.
But one factor I’ve all the time been the one doing in all of the tasks: Identity and Access Management. That ultimately introduced me into the world of SAML2 and federations and additional to OpenID Connect and IdentityServer. I began the Kentor.AuthServices undertaking as a small SAML2 module for .NET and it has now grown to turn into a SAML2 stack supporting a mess of deployment situations.
Kentor has been an amazing place to work at and I’m completely satisfied to have spent 8 years there. But through the time I’ve seen issues that I might have completed in another way. Now is the time for me to attempt that out, by going unbiased I can check out my concepts and see in the event that they work.
One of the issues I’ll do in another way is to have extra concentrate on open supply software program. I wish to see how far the work with Kentor.AuthServices can take me. The undertaking will likely be introduced over to Sustainsys and renamed (in case you have an opinion on the title, please [join the discussion]( The undertaking will proceed to be open supply and I’ll provide sponsored improvement for including new options in addition to help companies for setting it up.
The title Sustainsys is a reference to Sustainable Systems which is a vital a part of forming a sustainable future. We all have to do our half to deal with local weather change, air pollution and social injustice. Sustainsys is a industrial firm within the IT enterprise, however nonetheless, each single choices that we make have an environmental impression. At Sustainsys I need that impression to be weighted in, to be a part of each choice.
I additionally wish to discover my concepts of what makes a consulting firm sustainable. Once keen startups, pushed by folks’s enthusiasm many corporations find yourself as sleepy dragons, specializing in rising and delivering income to a distant proprietor. That doesn’t make sense to me. A product firm having invested closely in an invention has a worth in itself. But a consulting firm is nothing with out the consultants. There may be very little worth within the firm itself, the worth is the folks selecting to work for the corporate. If the worth is the workers, I feel that must be mirrored within the possession construction: an organization owned by the workers.
I need extra folks to hitch Sustainsys and I wish to make everybody working there a part of the corporate, with an equal possession share. As lengthy as you might be working at Sustainsys you might be an proprietor, as soon as you permit it’s important to hand your share again. The greatest concepts will not be introduced ahead by a single thoughts, they’re born from folks with totally different perspective discussing and forming an concept collectively. That is how I need Sustainsys to be. If you might be situated in Stockholm and concerned about listening to extra about becoming a member of me on this journey, please get in contact.
