Gluecon 2011: Changing the Game

Gluecon is unlike any conference I’ve ever run before.

Because it’s aimed at developers, the topics are far more technical than my feeble marketer’s brain can easily comprehend. And because Glue isn’t defined as “a cloud computing” conference, it’s not caught in the echo chamber of “defining” this, that and the other thing. Glue seeks […]

The Soundtrack and Save the Date

The dust is settling. We’re still something semi-human, so don’t expect much on this end for a few days, but I wanted to get the “save the date” message out, as well as publish the soundtrack (which is in demand).

Gluecon 2011: May 25-26 at the Omni Interlocken Resort (back bigger, badder and better than […]

Guest Post: BlankSlate

[Note: This is a guest post, cross-posted from BlankSlate.]

The Gluecon conference was held this week and included a Hackathon which BlankSlate sponsored. It went from Wed night at 7pm to Thurs at noon. Even though it wasn’t a lot of time, a long night with APIs that do a lot of the heavy lifting […]

The Friday Before

It’s the Friday before Gluecon (next wednesday-thursday), which means that the next time you’ll likely hear from me will be from the keynote stage at the show.

We’ve got an absolutely amazing group of sponsors, an out of this world agenda, and a list of gluecon participants that is shaping up to be the highest […]

Gluecon's Hackathon

Alright, you’ve got your gluecon ticket in hand (and if you don’t — I mean, really — why not?), and you’re wondering how your day 1 will end. I have the answer for you.

After a day that’s jam-packed with awesome, participatory sessions, you’ll find yourself at the gluecon evening reception (open bar, of course). […]

OpenID Connect and Gluecon

There’s some news floating around this morning about David Recordon’s proposal to rebuild OpenID on top of OAuth 2.0. I can’t say that I have an opinion on this yet (first off, being a non-engineering guy, I have to get David to explain it to me). I’ve been a partial critic of some OpenID […]

11 Days and Counting

In 11 days, the “clouderati” will descend on the Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colorado. People that are normally hard to pin down at all of those massive Silicon Valley tech conferences will be hanging out, having drinks, hacking apps, and talking glue stuff. Gluecon will be taking over the resort, so every where […]

Starting with the Why

I was going to write something this morning about how Glue’s right around the corner, and how you should come, and how great it will be. And then Brad went and posted this talk by Simon Sinek. Go watch it, I’ll wait (see you in 18 minutes).

You didn’t watch the whole thing, did you? […]

The Cloud Top 3's

Rackspace’s earnings report prompted a Twitter exchange between myself and Michael DeSilver (of LTech) that seemed interesting enough to report here.

Rackspace reported year over year growth in their cloud business of 77%, and sequential growth of 13% — all on $19 million in revenue (for the cloud biz). This prompted Mike and I to […]
