November is a big month for us here at New Relic. In addition to FutureStack15, our big annual user conference held in San Francisco Nov. 11-13, we also have a pretty packed agenda across the pond in Europe. From convention appearances to user groups to customer workshops, New Relic is going to be all over Europe this November and early December, and we hope to see you at the following events:


November 16 & 17: DockerCon Europe—Barcelona

Look Ma, No Server: An Intro to Creating Apps in a Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) World
Clay Smith, Developer Advocate, New Relic

clay smithClay will introduce key concepts and highlight important performance considerations when using a backend-as-a-service (BaaS) platform like Parse, Amazon Lambda, or Apache Usergrid to build modern Web and mobile applications. By creating high-level abstractions over backend services using easy-to-use client SDKs, BaaS platforms allow developers to quickly build quality, performant apps without worrying about scaling, server provisioning, or database maintenance. Clay will talk about key differences between BaaS platforms and the viability of using these emerging platforms for different types of client-facing applications.

In addition, there will also be a presentation from New Relic Sales Engineering Associate Manager Markus Strauss.
