Made your Glue plans yet? It’s not too late!

image Our Glue conference is finally upon us. The agenda and speakers are locked down and all the final details are being attended to. We have a great group of speakers lined up this year across a number of different tracks:

The  ”Hacking Identity” track  – which highlights user managed access (Eve Maler), federated provisioning (Nishant Kaushik), XAuth (Chris Messina), and Webfinger (Brad Fitzpatrick) and follows it up with a discussion moderated by Ian Glazer (of Burton Group, now Gartner).

“Integrating Drizzle” with Eric Day from Rackspace. Rackspace brought most of the Drizzle guys on board when the Sun-Oracle merger happened. I’m anxious to learn more.

“On Hadoop” with Todd Lipcon from Cloudera. Hadoop is about as dominant as it gets at the moment, and I profess to knowing far less about it than I should. You?

Three sessions on scalability and the cloud stack — from Bradford Stephens (Hadoop, HBase, Zookeeper), Oren Teich (of Heroku, on scaling apps), and Sebastian Stadil (Scalr).

The good news for those of you who haven’t signed up yet is that it’s not too late! Seriously – you have plenty of options. There are still reasonably priced flights from both coasts to Denver. And if you live in CO, you have even less of an excuse not to be there. Sign up before hand – you can still use “seth12” to get 10% off the ticket price, but there will be NO DISCOUNTS AT THE DOOR.

See you at Glue!
