Updated a Blog Post
I less-than-regularly update old blog posts, and I have meant to update this one for ages, as although it is still relevant, it is five years old and the tech has changed a lot since then.

Wrote a Blog Post
Spent forever creating a series of blog posts on Authorization Code Flow with Microsoft Identity. From using an authorization code to acquire an access token, then introducing refresh tokens and OIDC id tokens, and finally confirming the validity of an id token.

Although it is factored around Azure Functions, the concepts are the same no matter what way you'd want to spin it up.

Hosted a Meetup
Along with Cameron Dwyer, hosted a virtual watch party for the "Building Apps with Microsoft Graph" live stream.

We watched the live stream and chatted about what we saw. There were some great conversations had about the technologies, benefits, and limitations of what we saw.

This watch party was for the APAC timeslot but even had people in Poland join us!
