Vertically Challenged

Aurynn Shaw

From East 2010 Speakers

In this talk, we will cover Vertically Challenged, a plugin for repoze.who which utilizes the Postgres system roles for web application authorization.

We will be covering the underlying theory of Vertically Challenged, both in terms of benefits to your project, as well as the weaknesses of the concept, and how VC leverages database functionality to make your application easier to code and maintain.

We will also be covering how to design your database roles tree, how Vertically Challenged makes your roles tree available in the application layer, and how to integrate Vertically Challenged with repoze.who.
