The AAF’s Training Program delivers a number of workshops across Australia aimed at increasing the technical skills of developers bringing services into the Federation, including new developers and those who may have previously worked with Federated services.
Testimonials from recent Federating Services Workshops:
“I highly recommend this workshop for those wanting to get on top of the fundamentals of integrating services with Shibboleth and the AAF. This task can seem daunting at first, but this workshop builds the understanding to show how simple it really all can be.” (Deakin University)
“The AAF Federating Services workshop was a wonderful learning experience, presented by knowledgeable and helpful staff at a good pace; at the end of the day I was able to take this knowledge back to my team and teach them how to federate a service.” (Griffith University)
