Is the intent to host this content off of the Developers dropdown menu at openid.net?

We could volunteer for C# - we already have an extensive set of samples for the various flows here:


So I could also write some of that up.

Hi Connectors,

Having seen 'OpenID Connect is not so hard' session by Justin and Amazon sessions at IIW XIX, I started to feel that perhaps having language specific cookbooks would help developers a lot.

For example, we could write a cookbook for JavaScript public client with proper handling of state parameters, generation of cryptographic random, etc. with sample codes that can be copied to their projects. I am pretty sure that if we do not provide these, people are prone to write a client with Math.random or even worse -- a fixed string-- as nonce and state.

What do you think?

The first batch of language that I have in mind are:

- JavaScript
- Python
- Ruby
- Java

Any volunteers to lead each project?
