Talentsky powers skill communities so people and employers can better connect in the changing world of work. Employers publish their community role skills, illustrative work examples, provide valuable forums and post content that provides a clear understanding of the career experience at their company. People use Talentsky to connect with specific communities of interest, engage in forum activity and post content to understand how their skills compare to the community role for a brighter future.

OpenId Connect(OIDC) - SSO

OpenID Connect (OIDC) is an authentication protocol based on the OAuth 2.0 family of specifications and can be used for building Single Sign-On(SSO) integration using third party OIDC/Identity Providers like OKTA. I developed OIDC connector for Talentsky application. The OIDC connector can work with any third party OIDC provider. As part of this project, I tested support for OKTA OIDC and KeyCloak OIDC provider from RedHat. As a result of this support, users can sign in via an OIDC provider like Okta and launch Talentsky using a preconfigured application without having to re-enter credentials. As part of this project I had to gain in-depth understanding of OpenID Connect(OIDC) protocol as well as the different OIDC integration approaches. This work can act as a foundation for future Integration with third party Identity providers to support other security protocols like SAML and to enable Social Login.

Docker Infrastructure

Docker enables creation of repeatable development, build, test, and demo environments at the click of a button and thus provides tremendous agility and productivity gains for developers. Docker enables isolated environment for separate applications running completely different stacks and can dramatically reduce infrastructure resources needed to support different isolated environments. I created the docker infrastructure for software stack used by the Talentsky Platform. Docker containers are now possible for the following components : Couchbase, Elasticsearch, Backend Platform and the Front End Platform. Currently, the docker containers are being used for creating isolated environments for the following : - Demo environment - Sand Box environment for Customers - Elasticsearch Migration - Developer environment The current infrastructure will serve as a base for potentially more docker related use cases in future.
