Glasscon 4.0


The Government reopened in sufficient time for us to continue to hold it at Census. We deeply appreciate the flexibility of our Speakers and attendees for being able to change locations.


We are (again) happy to announce that the next Government Lean-Agile Software & Systems Conference is set for 25-26 January 2018. GLASScon is about helping Government personnel develop a deeper understanding of what Agility means and how to better enable it within their organization (see the Outcomes Page).

Our theme this is year is “Stretching Your Mind For Agility”.


We provide inspirational short talks called Sparks to give you insight into some aspect of Agility; and then you develop the topics that interest you for a more detailed discussion. We do several iterations of Spark-Topics so that we always stay attuned to what you need, while interjecting some fresh ideas.  See the Experience Page to gain more insight into how this particular conference works.  Additionally, this is intended for Government personnel; this is organized by Federal and former Federal personnel with an eye towards allowing a free exchange of information.  You can get a good feel for this on the Audience Page.

Want to find out what you’ll hear? Check out the Schedule  of Sparks.

Based on the feedback we have had, this year we will schedule 2 days to allow for a greater variety of topics as well as provide a couple of hands-on workshops.

The event will be at the US Census Bureau in Suitland Maryland. They have a wonderful conference facility and an onsite cafeteria. Attendance is free to attendees.

We have adopted the Agile Alliance’s Code of Conduct.

Be kind to others.

Behave professionally.

While we have never needed to act on any type of harassment or other unsafe activity, we felt it important to articulate expected behaviors for all participants: attendees, speakers, and organizers.
