Looking Ahead to GlueCon 2018

  May 14, 2018

This week, the SmartBear team is heading to Denver for Glue Conference (GlueCon) 2018. 

GlueCon is a developer conference focused on the tools and platforms that are changing the technology landscape – including: Serverless Architectures, Containers, Microservices, APIs, DevOps, Mobile, Analytics, Performance Monitoring, and Blockchain Applications. 

SmartBear is a proud sponsor of the event. Throughout the week we’ll be doing live presentations of how tools like SwaggerHubSoapUI ProAlertsite and Swagger Inspector let teams streamline their API development, and how SmartBear developer tools are helping teams deliver great software. 

We’ll also be announcing a major update for one of our newest Swagger API tools on Tuesday, so keep an eye out for the announcement! 

Heading to Gluecon? Here’s a look ahead to what we’re looking forward to at GlueCon 2018: 

Workshops and Presentations 

OpenAPI Specification v3 Workshop 

The OpenAPI Specification (OAS) is an open description format for API services that is vendor neutral, portable, and open. The latest version of the OpenAPI Specification was released last year, and is quickly gaining option from API providers and software tool vendors. In this workshop, Ron Ratovsky, Swagger Developer Evangelist, and member of the OpenAPI Initiative Technical Steering Committee, will look at what’s new in OAS 3.0.  

When: Wednesday, May 16 @ 2:30pm 

How Serverless and the OpenAPI Specification Can Help Accelerate Your API Development 

In this talk, Keshav Vasudevan, Product Marketing Manager, Swagger at SmartBear, will be taking a deep dive into understanding what exactly is an API First approach with the OpenAPI Specification (OAS), discuss Serverless architecture, understand why developers should develop APIs and applications in this framework, and detail how AWS Lambda, API Gateway and the OAS work together for holistic API design development and management. 

When: Thursday, May 17 @ 2:05pm 

Visit the SmartBear booth 

GlueCon has a jam-packed agenda but we hope you’ll save some time to stop by the SmartBear booth between sessions. We’ll be participating in the GlueCon Passport Program to win cool prizes like a classic Nintendo NES, and will have other fun giveaways at the booth. We also have a few guests lined up to visit the booth for live Q&A interviews, so be sure to follow @SmartBear on Twitter to see when these interviews will be happening at the booth.  

But most importantly, we are looking forward to the chance to speak and learn from the GlueCon developer community. What are the big challenges your team is facing? What trends are reshaping the way you deliver software? Events like GlueCon are a great opportunity to connect and learn for individuals that are dealing with cutting edge technologies every day. We hope to see you there!
