In this workshop, we'll discuss how to get up and running with user authentication and authorization using Spring Security. We'll be storing user data, including names and passwords, in a database. Our Spring MVC app connects to the database using Hibernate. By the end of this course, you will have added user authentication to a simple task management application, allowing users to login, create new tasks, and mark & unmark them as complete.
I spent six years teaching introductory and advanced computer science to high school students in Omaha and Chicago, and have also worked as a full-time Java developer. As a teacher, I continually strive to support students in removing all perceived and actual barriers to learning highly sophisticated material.
I enjoy running and yoga, especially outdoors in the beautiful Chicago summer weather.
