New Relic’s FutureStack user conference has always been a great place where software developers, IT experts, and technologists can deepen their knowledge and expand their networks via dramatic keynotes, informative sessions, and even a few fun events.

This year for FutureStack15 we’re complementing the big-picture presentations and technical sessions by introducing the APM Essentials Bootcamp. Scheduled for Wed., November 11, at San Francisco’s landmark Fairmont Hotel, this full-day, hands-on workshop is designed to show you how to best use New Relic’s Software Analytics Platform to monitor your applications. The Bootcamp concept is already attracting recruits, and more than half of all FutureStack registrants so far have chosen to enlist!
