The First Draft

By |January 25th, 2016|

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: […]

Gluecon’s Code of Conduct

By |January 18th, 2016|

[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 harassment-free […]

1 Month to Gluecon!

By |April 22nd, 2015|

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 deep […]

Announcing the APIStrat Un-Workshops

By |April 6th, 2015|

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|

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|

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 with […]

A First Draft

By |January 28th, 2015|

The process of building the Gluecon agenda is one that I always thoroughly enjoy. Over the years, it has become my annual “get ahead of the curve” study period, where I get to see what’s really on the minds of developers doing cutting edge stuff. As I’ve said endlessly, we pride ourselves on striving […]

Some Early Gluecon Sessions

By |January 14th, 2015|

I haven’t yet released the first draft of the Gluecon 2015 agenda. I have, however, began working away at the agenda, and have confirmed roughly 15 of what will be the 80+ technical sessions we’ll have at Gluecon. If you’re thinking about attending this year’s show, I thought a sneak peak into some of […]

Gluecon’s CFP-ish

By |January 5th, 2015|

It’s January, which means it’s time to start putting together the Gluecon agenda. If you’ve never been to Gluecon, and this is the first you’re looking at it, know this: our mission is simple — be the most technically deep, developer-focused tech conference on the planet. That should also guide your speaking submissions.

At Gluecon, […]
