Agenda Highlights

By April 21, 2010Uncategorized

The gluecon agenda is rounding the final turn and headed toward the finish line, and I gotta tell ya – I’m pretty happy with how’s it’s turning out.

As I scan through it, the breadth *and* depth of technical presentations it what strikes me. And I’m still confirming some final slots. I’m adding things like:

  • Chris Messina talking XAuth
  • Adrian Cole presenting about cloud provisioning with java and clojure
  • A Cloudera expert coming in to dive deep on Hadoop
  • A session about Drizzle and Gearman

Of course, besides the late adds, the agenda has sessions like:

  • How 2^4 people handle >2^14 users with ~2^16 apps in the cloud
  • Memcached: Fast Distributed State for your Site’s Glue
  • Configuration Management in the Cloud
  • Pricing an API Sucks. Here’s what we did.
  • Inside MongoDB: the Internals of an Open-Source NoSQL Database

and topics like Riak, CouchDB, Cassandra, Webfinger, YQL, SAML, OpenID, OAuth, WRAP, cloud testing and performance, hybrid clouds, and VMWare’s vCloud API.

I worked on this agenda with engineers in mind, and actually had the behind the scenes help and advice of several unsung engineering heroes (you know who you are!). I think all of the effort is paying off. We actually received an email from one person (who was registering a block of people) that said she had floated going to Gluecon to the engineering team, and gotten run over by responses — “I had no idea that many people would want to go.”  😉
