Off To Gluecon!

I will be at Glue Conference tomorrow and Thursday.  What is Gluecon? It’s a very nice developer oriented conference (from their website):

Cloud, DevOps, Mobile, APIs, Big Data — all of the converging, important trends in technology today share one thing in common: developers. Developers are the vanguard. Developers are building in the cloud, building mobile applications, utilizing and building APIs, and working with big data. At the end of the day, developers are the core.

I like a small conference atmosphere. A small conference allows to have more conversations, discussions, and networking. If you are at the conference and would like to meet and chat about APIs, mobile development, adding your API plugin into Appery.io – just ping me.

There are a number of interesting sessions and I’m planning to attend:

  • DevOps vs the Enterprise: What we Can Learn From Mainframe by Mike Baukes, ScriptRock
  • Creating Apps with Beacons, Brian Wilson, Kinvey
  • Death to Cookies, Long Live Tokens – Matias Woloski & Eugenio Pace, Auth0
  • The New Development Experience Mark VanderWiele, IBM
  • 10 Reasons Why Developers Hate Your API (And What to Do About It), John Musser
  • MobileDevOps: Mobile Apps, APIs and DevOps, Alex Gaber, Crittercism
  • Seamless Innovation: A New Cloud Reality for App Development Ramiro Berrelleza, ElasticBox
  • APIs.json and API Discovery on the Web, Steven Willmott and Kin Lane
  • Creating APIs in the Enterprise Sumit Sharma, Mulesoft
  • Flynn: Building the Ideal Developer Platform – Jeff Lindsay, Digital Ocean

View the rest of the agenda.

Hope to see you there.

"With Digital Experience Monitoring what used to be a simple visit to a web page has exploded into app on phones, data from social media feeds, competitive benchmarking - these are all components that are only available because of some type of digital asset," explained Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to change their culture and cultures are very hard to change. To paraphrase Peter Drucker, "culture eats Agile for breakfast." Successful approaches are opportunistic and leverage the power of self-organization to achieve lasting change.
