SAN FRANCISCO — August 20, 2014 — Software analytics company New Relic today announced speakers from Adobe, Airbnb, GoPro, Bleacher Report, Lending Club and VenueNext for an action-packed lineup at the company’s second annual technology conference, FutureStack14, taking place October 8 and 9 in San Francisco. Many speakers will focus on how their organizations are using modern software and the data from it to disrupt entire markets – and even their own organizations.
GoPro SVP of Software and Services CJ Prober will take the stage with an entertaining talk on the company's road to disruption, market leadership and how software plays a critical role in their future. VenueNext Founder and COO John Paul will outline his vision for the platform powering the Levi’s® Stadium App for the San Francisco 49ers, the world’s first time-and-location-aware app that seamlessly connects fans with everything a venue has to offer. Also on stage will be Chris Whong, a self-described urbanist and civic hacker whose data visualizations mapping a day-in-the-life of a New York City taxi driver went viral overnight.
