FutureTalks Summer Series Bringing Tech Talks to Portland and San Francisco!

When we first launched the New Relic FutureTalks series in Portland last November, our goal was to help grow the community-driven software movement by celebrating the amazing folks who use technology to change our world for the better. Since then, FutureTalks has grown into the must-attend event for developers, designers, and founders in the Portland area. (Check out our event recaps for a taste.)

Now, we’re bringing FutureTalks down the West Coast to San Francisco for a special, limited-time Summer Series. Starting in July we’ll be hosting three talks in breezy San Francisco, while keeping the party going with three additional talks in beautiful Portland. You’ll hear from speakers like Andy Wilson and Jessica McKellar, meet and mingle with like-minded data nerds, and enjoy tasty treats from local vendors.

Together, we’ll be examining the code of tomorrow, celebrating and meeting the people who write it, and looking ahead to the future of modern software. Then, in October, you can continue your learning at FutureStack14, New Relic’s second-annual tech conference!

Mark your calendars now, as these events are bound to fill up fast. Check out the schedule below and RSVP to our first talks in San Francisco and in Portland now!
