Early Bird Ends Next Week

By | April 8th, 2016|Uncategorized|

We've turned the corner into spring, and are quickly heading toward the start of summer. That means gluecon is on the horizon, and our early bird pricing is ending next Friday (April 15th). I'll be finalizing the agenda over the next 3 weeks, but you can see a huge majority of it here. I've got [...]

The “Inclusion is the Glue” Diversity Scholarship

By | March 30th, 2016|Uncategorized|

We've been working on increasing diversity (and diversity scholarships) for several years now. Along the way, we've learned a bunch, and had what I thought was some limited success, but there's always that desire to do more. Over the course of these past few years, Salesforce has consistently stepped up and been a major supporter [...]

Event Marketing at a Startup

By | March 21st, 2016|Uncategorized|

Back in the early mists of time (ok, early 2000's), I was the first person to run marketing at Ping Identity. Ping wasn't exactly founded during the boom times, and I even had the pleasure of a post-board conversation with a board member that basically went, "meet your goals, or you're demoted, and we're hiring [...]

The First Draft

By | January 25th, 2016|Uncategorized|

Over here at gluecon, we do things a bit differently when it comes to constructing the agenda. Much to the dismay of PR firms everywhere, I don't do a "CFP" with a hard date for submission and a hard date when the accepted papers are announced. I don't do this for one primary reason: a [...]

Gluecon’s Code of Conduct

By | January 18th, 2016|Uncategorized|

[This is a repost of Gluecon’s Code of Conduct.] As I said last year, it pisses me off that we even need to say this in this day and age, but it appears that we do. As such, Gluecon’s Code of Conduct (with thanks to the Geek Feminism Wiki): Gluecon is dedicated to providing a [...]

1 Month to Gluecon!

By | April 22nd, 2015|Uncategorized|

We're now just under one month out from Gluecon! You can see the agenda here. It's basically finalized (those empty spaces are cases where I'm just waiting on a session title), and I'm really happy with how it's turned out. If you're a developer, the agenda offers a veritable smorgasbord of technical goodness. We go [...]

Announcing the APIStrat Un-Workshops

By | April 6th, 2015|Uncategorized|

I'm very pleased to announce that for the second year in a row, we'll be having the API Strategy and Practice Tech Un-Workshops on May 19th (the day before Gluecon starts). These workshops are discussion-focused groups divided into two tracks --- organized by the wonderful Kin Lane and Steven Willmott. The two tracks are "API [...]

Gluecon’s Women in Tech Scholarship

By | March 26th, 2015|Uncategorized|

I'm very pleased to say that, with the gracious support of Salesforce, we will once again be able to offer the Gluecon Women in Tech scholarship this year. The scholarship is simple: we have a limited number of "scholarships" to Gluecon. This covers the registration fee for the conference, not any travel, hotel or other [...]

Gluecon Topics

By | February 10th, 2015|Uncategorized|

As we round the corner into the second half of February, the Gluecon agenda is beginning to come together.  You can see that we're putting together some great sessions around devops, APIs, distributed systems, etc. And fleshing things out with talks like: "How To Create Google-Like Infrastructure: From the OS to the Scheduler" "Declarative Infrastructure [...]
