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 more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
In an era of historic innovation fueled by unprecedented access to data and technology, the low cost and risk of entering new markets has leveled the playing field for business. Today, any ambitious innovator can easily introduce a new application or product that can reinvent business models and transform the client experience. In their Day 2 Keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Mercer Rowe, IBM Vice President of Strategic Alliances, and Raejeanne Skillern, Intel Vice President of Data Center Group and GM, discussed how clients in this new era of innovation can apply data, technology, plus human ingenuity to springboard to advance new business value and opportunities.
DXWorldEXPO LLC announced today that "IoT Now" was named media sponsor of CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO 2018 New York, which will take place on November 11-13, 2018 in New York City, NY.

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to the new world.
