On the Ibuildings techPortal today they've posted the latest in their DPC Radio series of podcasts as recorded at last year's Dutch PHP Conference. In this new episode they share Lorna Mitchell's talk "Implementing OAuth".

With Twitter moving its API to OAuth the idea of using tokens rather than passwords for authentication went mainstream. Many explanations of OAuth make it seem complicated whereas in reality the "OAuth Dance" is a series of simple steps executed in sequence. This talk covers consuming and providing OAuth services, includes implementation examples, and is recommended for all technical leads, architects, and integration specialists.

You can listen to this latest episode either via the in-page player or by downloading the mp3. You can follow along with the presentation in her slides.
