New Relic, Inc. (NYSE: NEWR), the observability platform company, today announced Nerd Days, a free one-day virtual event dedicated to helping developers build more perfect software. Nerd Days is specifically designed by New Relic engineers as a hands-on-keyboard experience with live coding, demos, workshops, networking breakouts, and expert-led Q&A sessions—minimal slideware guaranteed.
The event will feature more than 25 sessions, expert panels, and keynote speakers from New Relic, 27Global, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Kinect Consulting, Split Software, and more. Additional programming includes fireside chats, live demos and a lunch and learn with New Relic CEO and Founder Lew Cirne. The event will have both introductory and advanced tracks, and attendees can decide to join sessions within five tracks: Observability, Cloud Migration, Open Source, DevOps Journey, and New Relic Fundamentals.
“New Relic is dedicated to serving our developer community. We are constantly thinking about how to help engineers build innovative solutions and better understand their needs at every stage of the development journey, which is why we are introducing Nerd Days 1.0, a brand new virtual event that allows engineers to engage with their peers directly and learn more about New Relic from community experts. We look forward to hearing real-time user feedback at the event to learn how we can improve our platform to serve developers.” -- Mark Weitzel, VP product management, New Relic
“I decided to speak at Nerd Days because I’m a nerd! The power of observability from New Relic combined with the power of experimentation and feature flagging from Split makes them a perfect match. I love that you can Integrate Split data into New Relic to monitor and measure the impact of your features. This is critical especially when testing in production.” -- Talia Nassi, developer advocate, Split
