The agenda for FutureStack14, our annual technology and user conference in San Francisco October 8th and 9th, is built around two main tracks. The Keynote & Technology Track features industry leaders like John MacIlwaine from LendingClub, CJ Prober from Go Pro, Colleen Berube from Adobe, Jason Calacanis from Inside.com and many more. The New Relic Track, meanwhile, gets up close and personal with New Relic products, services and personnel.
But that’s not all. Not even close.
We couldn’t be more excited about our brand new Hallway Track! These innovative sessions will be in an “unconference” format, with the topics primarily suggested and presented by FutureStack14 attendees themselves. We welcome talks on subjects ranging from performance tuning, software development, and New Relic products all the way to tech culture and engineering organizations. A couple talks have already been suggested and approved, including a workshop on how to hack our cool Wi-Fi and NFC equipped badges and a New Relic Insights workshop.
Here’s a quick run-down on how the Hallway Track works:
When & Where: Hallway Track presentations will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, October 8 and 9 from 11 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in the Hacker Lounge (in Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion)
Formats: Talks can be either 20 minutes or 5-minutes (lightning) talks. We will also have 30-minute Birds of a Feather group sessions.
How to speak: Submit your talk via the online form beginning Wednesday, October 1st. Or you can simply go to the Hacker Lounge once FutureStack14 opens on October 8. But don’t wait, we only have so many Hallway Track slots, and when they’re full we’ll have to stop accepting suggestions.
That’s it! To stay up to date on the Hallway Track, use the FutureStack14 hashtag on Twitter: #FS14.
We’ll meet you in the hallway…
