Multi-tenant Apps Using cloudscribe with Joe Audette
What does it take to build great multi-tenant apps on the cloud? Carl and Richard talk to Joe Audette about his set of open source tools called cloudscribe to make multi-tenant apps easier to implement. The conversation starts out with managing IdentityServer, the great open source library for handling single-sign-on across multiple applications. Cloudscribe helps you manage the sites, users, roles and claims for IdentityServer. But there's more to multi-tenancy than just authentication and authorization, and Joe dives into the other elements of the suite to get your multi-tenant app running right!
Joe Audette is a Micorosft MVP. He started out working with MS Access 2.0/95 and VB6 back in 1996. He has been doing web development since the beginning with Classic ASP and then ASP.NET when it first came out. Over the years, he has done quite a bit of work in content management and ecommerce. He wrote the blog module for a thing called Rainbow Portal back in 2003 and founded the mojoPortal project in 2004. He actively developed mojoPortal and commercial add on features until late 2014. He began working on a new set of web components in late 2014 with MVC 5 and moved to ASP.NET Core in June of 2015 (beta 4 or 5). Now he has a number of related open source projects and components branded as "cloudscribe". The main projects are cloudscribe.Core which is a multi-tenant web application foundation for managing sites, users and roles, and cloudscribe.SimpleContent which is a blog and content engine that can be used with Open Live Writer and can work with or without a database. He is currently trying to bootstrap his own business again building commercial components that can integrate with ASP.NET Core apps including but not limited to my open source apps.
