Four years ago, exactly I was free from all obligations with my previous employer and started to work for ForgeRock.
My first goal was to setup the French subsidiary and start thinking of building a team to take on development of what we named a coming later OpenDJ.
4 years later, I look at where we are with ForgeRock and I feel amazed and really proud of what we’ve built. ForgeRock is now well established global business with several hundreds of customers across the globe, and plenty of opportunities for growth. The company has grown to more than 200 employees worldwide and still expanding. The ForgeRock Grenoble Engineering Center has moved to new offices end of May and counts 13, soon 14 employees and we’re still hiring.
Thanks to the ForgeRock founders for the opportunity and let’s keep rocking !!!
Since I’ve started working at ForgeRock, I’ve had hard times to explain to my non-technical relatives and friends, what we were building. But those days are over.
Thanks to our Marketing department, I can now refer them to our “ForgeRock Story” video :
Great article about ForgeRock and its CTO and founder, that tells a lot about the culture of the company: Forgerock’s startup journey.
Two weeks ago, the first IRM Summit took place in Phoenix AZ, at the amazing Arizona Biltmore. It was a great pleasure to meet with many friends and acquaintances, analysts and experts in the Identity space. Lots of conversations, ideas et food for thoughts !
If you haven’t been able to attend, or missed a session or two, you can watch the videos from the event : https://www.youtube.com/user/ForgeRock/videos
And as usual, I’ve made all the photos that I’ve taken during the event available online, including the ForgeRock Partner event that happened the day earlier.
The ForgeRock University department has scheduled an in person, instructor led training for the OpenDJ Administration, Maintenance and Tuning module, in London from June 23rd to June 26th 2014.
The 4 days training provides the perfect opportunity to learn in details everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the OpenDJ directory service and how to get the best of it.
The training is firmly confirmed but still have a few seats available. If you’re interested, you can register here.
The summit agenda is amazing, and I’m really looking forward to meet the best industry experts, some of our partners, and some of our customers. If you haven’t registered yet, there might still be passes available. But don’t wait too much, it’s only a week away. See you in Phoenix !
As ForgeRock is growing fast and we have a number of new hires joining us in the Grenoble Engineering Center, we’ve moved office for a larger space, still in the same building.
It also has a couple of smaller office for managers , and a decent meeting room, that has already been hacked :-)
And the good news is that the new office will allow us to hire even more, in the next months and years.
