FOSDEM is the free and open source (FOSS) conference taking place in Brussels. We were there. Again. We talked about midPoint. Again. And it was a complete success. Even better than the last time.
Happy new year! 2018 is here. And it looks like a very exciting year for midPoint. There are new development plans for 2018 but also interesting changes in our business model. There is so much to look forward to in 2018.
This year (2017) was full of training courses. Literally, there was almost no month without any training. Some took place in our office in Bratislava, Slovakia, some were remote/online sessions, but most of them were onsite, which meant a lot of travelling.

Once upon a time there was an idea to manage more than the users and their accounts using midPoint. We moved beyond the boundaries of traditional old-fashioned identity managers introducing generic synchronization which allows to synchronize and manage organizations, organizational units, groups, group membership and everything related to identities. The constraints in relation to identities[…]
