Developing Apps with Azure AD (4 hours) by Radi Atanassov
Authentication has always been one of the most complex topics when developing client applications that need to call APIs secured with Active Directory. This is where Azure ADAL (Active Directory Authentication Libraries) comes to the rescue, making authentication much simpler for developers of any platform, be it Android, .NET, iOS or NodeJS. In this workshop, Radi Atanassov, well known MVP and MCM, will explain how you can leverage Azure ADAL when building apps that authenticate against Active Directory. Read more here.
