Readiness & Learning

Readiness & Learning

Auth0 is an extensible platform that can be used in many ways.  The resources here aren’t designed to address every possible use case or configuration but rather provide you with the basic overview of a variety of topics.  This is best suited if you’re fairly new to Auth0, or for others in your team that may be working with Auth0 in the future.


Auth0 Foundations

These are some of the core concepts to understand and help you get up and running with maximum effectiveness and minimal issues.

  • Common Architecture Scenarios – This doc describes the typical architecture scenarios we have identified when working with customers on implementing Auth0, and points to resources relevant to each.
  • Auth0 101 – Learn about how easy it is to integrate Auth0 in your application and how to implement the different features Auth0 provides in a breeze. (5 x ~5-minute video.)
  • Getting started with Auth0 Lock – Auth0 Lock widget is a beautifully designed, all-in-one, embeddable login box for your apps.  (3 x ~5-minute video.)
  • Developer Overview – This video is a slightly deeper dive for developers and will show you how easy it is to add Auth0 to your application. You will also see how to customize Auth0 to meet the exact needs of your solution.  (1 x ~20-minute video.)
  • Rules Overview  – This developer focussed video will show you to use Rules to customize and extend the Auth0 platform, including customizing user profile, adding authorization, and integrating with external services all with a few lines of JavaScript. (1 x ~15-minute video.)
  • Understanding sessions and cookies – This developer focussed video will help you better understand how Auth0 works with sessions and cookies in a traditional web application.  (1 x ~10-minute video.)

Advanced

Take a deeper dive into more specific guidance across different frameworks, languages, standards, protocols and other concepts.

  • JWT 101 – In this video, you’ll hear about JWT, what are they, how are they structured and its uses. We will write a small Node application that generates JWTs and show you how they’re used in the debugger.  (1 x ~20-minute video.)
  • OAuth 101 – OAuth is a specification that allows users to delegate access to their data without sharing their username and password with that service. In this video we will see why you as a developer should care about it.  (1 x ~60-minute video.)
  • Angular JS Authentication – In this course we are going to learn about the challenges associated with traditional authentication and how to use what is arguably the best alternative: the JSON Web Token (14 x ~10-minute videos.)

What's next?
