“Glue is a case study of what a conference is supposed to be.”


Glue is a developer­ oriented conference that is focused on how Serverless Architectures, Containers, Microservices, APIs, DevOps, Mobile, Analytics, Performance Monitoring, and cutting edge developer platforms and tools are changing the technology landscape.

Gluecon Exists…

because we believe that for all of the tech conferences that are out there, none of them are as focused on developers as they should be.

Who’s Coming…

If you’re a developer, Gluecon is your conference. So, be in touch, get involved, and come hack something at Gluecon with us.
