Vertically Challenged

Aurynn Shaw

This talk is a discussion on permissions systems, and how they relate to web applications. Generally, web applications tend to implement their permissions system asynchronously to the DB permissions system - if the DB's permissions system is used at all. We will cover why you should investigate a vertically integrated permissions stack, the benefits and drawbacks to doing so, and will cover a basic library implementation on Pylons, Simpycity and Repoze.who that utilizes a consistent permissions model.
