Camp DevOps! (at Gluecon 2014)

One of the big uptrends in technology is the rise of DevOps. Whether your organization is a large enterprise or a fledgling startup, DevOps can help.  We have seen this first hand in many of our portfolio companies and the market in general.  This is why we are excited to be working with Eric Norlin…

Glue 2012 will be the best Gluecon yet

As you may know from reading prior posts on the subject the two days that comprise the Glue Conference (May 23rd and 24th, 2012) are some of the most information packed and interesting days of my year. To me what sets Glue apart is that it stands almost alone in the conference circuit as a…

The evolution of Gluecon

I was thinking about the evolution of our Glue conference as I drove into work this morning. It’s pretty remarkable how much the infrastructure ecosystem – and therefore our little conference that focuses on it – has changed since we ran our first Gluecon in 2009. The initial premise for Glue was to get together…

Gluecon and Alcatel-Lucent team – changing the game at Gluecon 2011

[Cross  posted from a piece I put up on the Foundry Group blog earlier today] Our goal for Gluecon has always been to make it *the* gathering place for developers working on the connective technologies that hold the web and IT infrastructure together – from web services to SOA to APIs and cloud computing.

Have you registered for Glue yet?

I can’t help myself at this time of year but to remind you that you probably haven’t registered for Glue yet and that you need to get on it. Glue is one of three conferences that Foundry helps facilitate with Eric Norlin (the others are Defrag and Blur, the latter of which is still in…

We don’t charge companies to present at VCIR

There’s been an extremely lively debate online over the last few months about the practice of charging entrepreneurs to present to VCs. You can see my post on that subject here, one from my partner Jason Mendelson over on peHUB here, Jason Calicanis’ very popular post on the subject here (and a quick search on…

A note to Colorado technologists – Attend Glue!

I’m reposting a note from Eric Norlin, our partner in both the Glue and Defrag conferences which really struck a chord with me. While Foundry invests across the US, we’re based in Colorado and do our best to support the local startup ecosystem. As part of this we very deliberately set up camp with both…
