Since joining Auth0 in September 2014, I had a chance to create and evolve Auth0 Webtasks. Webtasks originally provided the foundation for extending the functionality of the multi-tenant Auth0 platform through custom code.

Webtasks are like serverless webhooks: webhooks with a hosting platform included.

Below is a collection of blog posts I have written on the subject.
