Creating more perfect software together
Join us at FutureStack19 for an intensive and informative day created for modern technology professionals. Learn how your peers are navigating technology shifts and thriving in a software-driven, cloud-native world.
This year, we’ll help you answer questions such as:
- How to accelerate your shift to cloud-native and reimagine the way your applications are delivered, run, and monitored
- How to scale DevOps practices beyond individual teams and build a culture of measurement and continuous improvement
- How to develop a unified, entity-centric view of your applications, services, and systems, and understand their relationships and dependencies, in order to provide a greater end customer experience.
- What's new and what's next in observability for the modern world - from Kubernetes and serverless technologies to AIOps
- Tips and Tricks from our customers on how to make the most out of New Relic
Pre-Conference: New Relic University
New Relic Dashboards-Make New Relic Work For You
In this hands-on training session you will have the opportunity to build custom charts and dashboards that provide actionable insights about the customer experience with your application, your application environments, and your infrastructure.
You will get to explore the data and powerful capabilities of Insights, learn how to use both the Chart Builder and write Advanced NRQL queries, and use the wealth of new features in the latest Dashboard functionality. You will learn some interactive NRQL tricks, cool dashboarding visualization techniques, and take part in some fun challenges that test your skills and knowledge. If there was a hackathon for dashboarding - this would be it! In addition you will get to see and work with the New Relic One extended user interface, with powerful search features, tagging, new service maps and adding favorites to further customize your experience with New Relic.
Pre-Conference: Hacker Workshop
Come Hack on the New Relic Platform
Are you looking for ways to prove the value of your software to your business? Do your leaders ask you to connect your SLIs to business KPI? Do you know the basics of React (or do you want to learn)?
Come join us the day before FutureStack, and we’ll help you do just that!
In this workshop you will:
Get an introduction to “the art of the possible”, with example applications built on the New Relic programmable platform, based on real-world use cases.
You will learn how easy it is to get up and running with your first application.
And you will get hands-on support in building out more advanced visualizations using the same tools New Relic engineers use in building curated products.

Moving to Entity-Centric Observability with New Relic One
As modern software teams move to loosely-coupled applications and microservices architectures, it’s more important than ever to get a unified picture of the entities that make up your estate, from applications to clusters, services, and hosts. This talk will show you how New Relic One gives you an entity-centric view into all of your software so you can cut through complexity, provide context, and see across artificial organizational boundaries to quickly find and fix problems.

Generating Context From Your Log Data
Modern cloud infrastructure, applications, and web services require deep traceability and insights throughout the stack to troubleshoot and resolve issues faster and provide a superior customer experience. In this modern, digitally-driven economy, developers and DevOps teams don’t have the luxury to spend the time to manually piece together information to analyze data and find the root cause from disparate telemetry sources. In this talk, see how you can bridge the visibility gap between your metrics, events and log data, gain deeper insights to identify performance bottlenecks and troubleshoot production issues, and reduce MTTR.
Jené Scott, Software Engineer, New Relic
Julian Giuca, Product GM & Principal Software Engineer, New Relic
Defining the Principles, Habits, and Practices of Site Reliability Engineering
No matter how you define it, the Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) role is clearly expanding into more organizations. To be effective in this new role, SREs must possess a deep understanding of how different systems work together, why they fail, how they can be improved, and how they can best be designed and monitored. This talk will discuss the cultural shifts needed when moving to a SRE practice, the relationship between SRE and DevOps, and how you can apply these practices to enable self-service with greater agility and reliability.

After Lift & Shift -- What Does Successful Modernization Take?
Moving to the cloud is only one component of a strategy to modernize your infrastructure, applications, and approach to software development. What does it take to successfully modernize? This presentation will walk you through the benefits and key elements of a continuous modernization strategy—from rehosting and replatforming, to refactoring your applications running in the cloud.

Multidimensional Kubernetes Monitoring with New Relic
Performance monitoring in a cloud native world is very different from monitoring a traditional environment. During this interactive session, we will show how teams can use New Relic to observe performance and dependencies in their Kubernetes environment, and troubleshoot failures, bottlenecks, and other abnormal behavior—helping ensure that their applications are always available, running fast, and doing what they’re supposed to do.
Stijn Polfliet, Principal Technical Evangelist, New Relic
Kyle Weaver, Senior Platform Developer, SRE, Gannett
Getting to Faster Incident Response with Applied Intelligence
Machine learning and artificial intelligence are revolutionizing the way operations teams work. In this talk, we’ll explore the incident management practices that can get you toward zero downtime, and talk about how New Relic can help you along that path.
