Lessons from Camp Skyline
Tuesday, September 30, 2014
By: Kurt Wondra  

In the past few years Skyline has organized several development camps (also known as “code camps”) for our talented associates to participate in.  Over that time, we have had an exceptional response rate from our associates who wish to contribute as well as maintained a great track record in terms of measurable results from the camps.  I’ve been fortunate enough to participate in three such camps during my tenure here at Skyline.  Through that participation, I can testify first-hand that these camps have tremendous value both for me as an individual Skyline associate as well as for the organization as whole.  In this blog post, I’ll share with you three key reasons why these camps are so valuable to Team Skyline.

Similar to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, defining Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) policies is going to depend on your organization. For those working with data that isn’t protected by law, it’s important to consider the great possibilities of BYOC and the power of placing trust in the professionalism of your fellow associates.  Business-centric storage clouds are now starting to become mainstream and they allow integration with employee mobile devices while giving control and management capabilities to the organization.

Skyline recently announced a new partnership with Datazen.  Datazen’s mobile data analysis and delivery capabilities complement our existing BI toolset, which enables Skyline to deliver mobile solutions quickly and easily for our clients.  Datazen allows us to quickly and easily develop dashboards and KPIs targeted for mobile devices such as tablets and phones.  These dashboards render in native applications for all flavors of phone/tablet operating systems and can also be viewed in web browsers and/or embedded into applications.  In this post I’ll demonstrate how simple it is to build a Datazen dashboard and publish it to the Datazen server.

Building an OAuth2 Authorization Server with DotNetOpenAuth
Thursday, August 28, 2014
By: Chris Plate  
This isn’t a typical quick-hitting blog post.  Rather, it is the documentation resulting from an effort to build a proof-of-concept of an OAuth2 Authorization Server using DotNetOpenAuth.  It’s not exactly light reading, but the first few paragraphs should at least convey the problem to be solved, while the rest provides more of the gory details on how to solve it if you're interested.  When asked to work on this for a client, there didn’t seem to be a single sample that I could find that detailed how all of the moving parts (and yes, there are a lot of them, hence the length of this post) fit together.  So I thought I’d share this walkthrough of the POC code, found at https://github.com/cplate/oauth2, as it might help someone that happens to need to do something similar to navigate the waters.
