Today we are excited to announce the launch of the New Relic Ambassador Program, our way of connecting with the New Relic community to recognize and reward community members for their contributions.

If you are a regular New Relic user, you may already be aware of the events and activities in the community. Perhaps you have even helped spread the word about our products and features by blogging, speaking, answering questions on the New Relic Community Forum, or organizing a user group. The Ambassador Program is our way to make sure people like you are properly recognized and thanked for your efforts.

Your level of involvement is up to you, and the members of the New Relic community team are here to help you organize local user groups, meetups, events, submit abstracts to conference calls for papers (CFP), or create and share your technical projects. You’ll be able to be part of the conversation, win awesome New Relic swag, and interact with our community managers and developer advocates. As a pioneering Ambassador, the more you help us, the more we will give you exclusive opportunities to talk with our teams, improve your skill set, and achieve personal and professional growth.

Why participate in the New Relic Ambassador Program?

  • Share your story. Did you have an interesting challenge or issue and a New Relic product helped solve the problem? Assist other New Relic users by sharing what you learned or figured out.
  • Enhance your skill set. The best way to get better at something is to practice, so why not practice your writing, event organizing, or public speaking about technologies you already love? There will be a variety of opportunities to create and share your content!
  • Expand your network. Participation in the program will allow you to expand your network, meet and collaborate with other Ambassadors, and have exclusive access to members of the New Relic team.
  • Have fun while doing it. We’re planning exciting challenges and contests for Ambassadors to participate in with the goal of building community and learning!

We have given our Ambassadors the nickname of “Datanauts” because technology is a vast and near-infinite space to explore. We hope that our Ambassadors are up to the challenge of exploring it with us!

Each action an Ambassador completes will unlock a reward. These rewards aren’t just cool swag (although who doesn’t love swag?). The rewards also include meaningful ways for you to connect with us here at New Relic. We’re initially announcing three levels, but there will be more as the program grows and we get feedback from you about what you love!

Becoming a New Relic Ambassador is fun and easy, and we want to provide you with the resources and opportunities to become part of a larger community, both online and off. No matter what language you work in, what products you use, or what level of expertise you have, you can participate and become a Datanaut.
