Hi Eugen,

We are currently using Spring on our project and, because we constantly handle sensitive data, it sure is always handy to go deeper into the security aspects of the application.

But I'm not sure about my level of knowledge of the framework.
Would you recommend it to someone who would start using Spring or maybe go through a tutorial first?
Because it's not a course about the core of Spring, is it?
Is there a lot of configuration/tweeking required to get up to speed with the content you offer?

Cheers,
Guillaume

Yes, this one is definitely not a course about Spring, and some basic Spring knowledge is necessary.
That being said, my goal throughout the material is to keep Spring Security as self contained as possible, and generally work on top of a very simple application (even when the security scenarios get complex, the underlying app shouldn't).
But yeah, simply put, you do need to have an understanding of Spring before you pick up the course.
Hope that clears things up. Cheers,
Eugen.

Thanks for your answer.

Along with that, I see subjects such as OAuth2, SAML, LDAP, SSO with which I'm not particularly familiar.
Are these topics described in the video or should I get the knowledge first about these topics elsewhere?

Thanks,
Guillaume

So, OAuth2 is explained from ground up. Same for SSO.
LDAP is introduced, but I'm not going to deep into what LDAP is, just because it's outside the scope of the course and there is a lot of intro material out there about it. Same for SAML.
The goal is to hit the right balance between introducing core concepts and assuming some prior knowledge.

Ok, nice.
Just need to get up the speed with some Spring basics and I'm good to go.

Well, thank you for bringing such an interesting content to the world.
It is definitely a course for me that I would recommend to my colleagues.

Kind regards,
Guillaume

Oh, I almost forgot.

Can the videos be accessed offline in case I want to watch them anywhere on a mobile device?

Thanks,
Guillaume

I've only introduced that as part of the Coaching program (which is closed beta right now) - so I'm still looking into more scalable options of doing it properly.
