Announcing Authentication v2 - from our first company retreat in Greece
This week was particularly special for Clerk: our team finally met in person!
We raised our initial seed funding as just 2 founders in March 2020, right as the pandemic was spreading across the globe. We've grown to 16 since then, but we hadn't met in person until this week's retreat in Greece. It was thrilling for the team to finally meet each other in person.
This week also marked a major milestone for Clerk as we launched the beta for "Authentication v2."
This is a brand new approach to how developers authenticate their end-users in their backend. We set out to resolve the biggest concerns and most frequent challenges raised by our early customers, namely:
Authorizationheader to simplify Cross-Origin Resource Sharing settings
Our own website has been running Authentication v2 for the past month and we're excited to open the beta to everyone. To get started, follow the guide here.
Soon, all new applications built on Clerk will default to Authentication v2.
