In mid-November, I had the privilege of sitting down with Andrew Connell to talk about my favorite topic for his podcast (http://www.microsoftcloudshow.com/podcast/Episodes/060-microsoft-cloud-identity-an-interview-with-paul-schaeflein). I had a great time!
Anyone who knows about my (lack of) memory when it comes to names and faces will appreciate that I have a similar (lack of) talent for acronyms. First question that AC asked, I answered wrong. I hope you don't hold that against me. (For the record, ADAL is the Active Directory Authentication Library.)
As I mentioned at the end of the show, here are links to the relevant technologies/products/libraries that we discussed. It was a pretty wide-ranging interview as you can tell from the lengthy list. I encourage you to subscribe to the podcast. It is absolutely worth an hour of your time each week.
