FutureStack14, New Relic’s second annual tech and user conference opened to a packed hall on October 8th, for CEO Lew Cirne’s keynote presentation announcing new features, new products and a brand-new acquisition. Following the keynote, conference participants attended talks in two different pavilions in San Francisco’s scenic Fort Mason, got photographed as data nerds, got the inside scoop on chowed down on fancy snacks and tasty food-truck grub, networked like crazy, and listened to top-notch speakers celebrate the power of data and software.
This is what the first day of the event looked like at FutureStack14.
