Back in November, we announced that Alcatel-Lucent was becoming the community underwriter and partner sponsor for Gluecon. The primary effect of this was that we were opening up a Demo Pavilion, where every company inside of it would be there based solely on merit, and not on the ability to pay.
We opened up the application process, took in a ton of applications, asked our cadre of distinguished judges to place their votes, and now I’m incredibly excited to announce the fifteen companies that have been chosen for Gluecon’s 2011 Alcatel-Lucent Demo Pod Pavilion:
It’s an amazing group of companies, all of whom will be showing their wares at Gluecon. In addition, all Gluecon attendees will be voting (via an app courtesy of Twilio) for the best demo pod at Gluecon, and the winner will be taking to the keynote stage on day 2 of the event.
I couldn’t be more excited about getting these companies involved. And we should all give a huge “thank you” to Alcatel-Lucent for sponsoring such a truly great thing for the developer community.
Lastly, early bird pricing for Gluecon expires next Monday, April 18th — so be sure to get your discounted registration today!
