Web applications often have some sort of login system, and once a user creates an account, they have access to features anonymous users can’t see. In time, application designers will often add an admin level of access for special users. This is often a slow trickle of technical debt. Proper execution of a programmatic authorization system requires concepts like roles, resources, departments, and organizations.

OSO describes itself as batteries included authorization. It’s an open source library used by companies like Intercom and Wayfair whicseh allows them to manage authorization in a robust and standardized framework without reinventing the wheel. In this episode we speak with Sam Scott, CTO at OSO.
