Student Passes for Gluecon

By |May 7th, 2014|

Every year, we try to do some student passes for Gluecon (free passes, that is). They always end up coming in the last 2 weeks (which I know is frustrating if you’re not local), but it’s really a function of “where” we get them from. You see, the student passes are essentially donated by […]

Camp DevOps

By |May 7th, 2014|

There’s a TON going on at Gluecon, but I wanted to draw your attention to one event that’s happening on the 20th (the day before Gluecon proper starts) — especially if you’re local to the area: Camp DevOps.

If you’re into DevOps, or if you want to figure out what is going on with DevOps, […]

Women in Tech….Going, going, gone!

By |May 2nd, 2014|

So, I guess my post back in March flew under the radar, as even I just noticed that I have 3 women in tech scholarships (courtesy of AT&T) left for Gluecon.

The deal is simple: the scholarship covers a free pass to gluecon (not travel or expenses); if you’re a female working in technology that […]

APIs and DevOps at Gluecon

By |May 1st, 2014|

Two of the hottest areas in tech this year are APIs (which we’ve been covering for over 5 years) and DevOps. As such, I thought I’d pull together what we’ve got going at Gluecon around these topics.

APIs at Gluecon

Things kick off on May 20th, with the APIStrat Tech Un-Workshop on Gluecon (from 1pm to […]

The Almost Final Agenda

By |April 24th, 2014|

If you haven’t yet looked at the gluecon agenda recently, you can find several versions of it here (google docs, pdf, session descriptions, etc).

As I’m nearing finalizing the agenda, I wanted to point out a few of things:

1. On day 1, you’ll see several breakout tracks: APIs, Cloud, DevOps and Identity. These tracks are designed to […]

So, you’ve never been to Gluecon?

By |April 16th, 2014|

Let’s say that somewhere on the twitterverse, you heard about this “gluecon” show, but you’ve never been. You’re curious, but on the fence. Let me see if I can help…with “why you’ll keep coming back to gluecon, after you’ve been”:

1. It’s run by 2 people: Gluecon is run by me and my wife, Kim. […]

Early Bird and APIs

By |April 2nd, 2014|

Gluecon’s early bird pricing is ending Friday, April 4th, so be sure to grab your seat today! Now, I could roll out the marketing-speak about the networking, the wifi, the bag schwag, etc….but it occurred to me, since Gluecon is all for developers, that maybe I’d talk about some of the cool content instead.

Back […]

The APIStrat Tech Un-Workshop @ Gluecon

By |March 26th, 2014|

I’m very pleased to announce that our friends over at the API Strategy and Practice Conference (Kin Lane and Steven Willmott) will be hosting the APIStrat Tech Un-Workshop in conjunction with Gluecon. This workshop A) is an unconference (the participants set the agenda); B) is free and open to the public (though we only […]

DevOps at Gluecon

By |March 19th, 2014|

When we started Gluecon, over six years ago, we first talked about gluecon as being about “the technologies that glue together web infrastructure.” That first year, Gluecon had your typical “technical track” and “business track.” But something strange happened, the majority of people that showed up were engineers — specifically, engineers working in the […]
