javaone logoThe JavaOne Conference, held in San Francisco next week, is the world’s largest event devoted to the Java programming language. With more than 2,000 sessions scheduled, and run in conjunction with Oracle OpenWorld, the event is so big that San Francisco shuts down a major downtown street to accommodate it. The action all happens just a few blocks from New Relic HQ, so you know our Java Monitoring team is going to be there.

To the New Relic booth … and beyond

In fact, we’ve got lots going on at JavaOne, starting with our booth (#5206), open Monday through Wednesday with a full schedule of “Lightning Theater” talks on key topics of interest to the Java community, ranging from how to “Ensure Java App Performance with New Relic APM” to “Using New Relic Browser for Faster Web Apps.” Of course, we’ll also have plenty of awesome New Relic t-shirts to hand out.

Chris Hansen, who manages our Java Agent team, will be giving an interactive Birds of a Feather talk called “It’s Not You; It’s Your App” [BOF10280] on Monday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. in the Hilton Hotel, Golden Gate Rooms 2/3. For more information on Chris’ talk, check out this preview by Joel Shore at TechTarget’s Search Cloud Applications site: Solve Performance Woes with App Monitoring. “Pinpointing performance issues caused by an application or service running on a Java virtual machine provides useful information for any developer,” Shore notes.

Community calendar

Of course, like any event that brings together programmers from far and wide, JavaOne is a great opportunity for the Java community to network, learn from each other, and have fun. And New Relic will be participating in a number of JavaOne community events, including the Geek Bike Ride at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday and the JDuchess Dinner (for women in Java), at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday at Osha Thai Restaurant, 311 3rd St. in San Francisco.

Tamao Nakahara, our Director of Developer Relations & Community Marketing, and Developer Advocate Tori Wieldt will be participating in the fast-paced Ignite Presentations on Tuesday evening from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Finally, we’ll also be at the IoT/Wearables area at the HackerGarden on Tuesday and Wednesday. Wouldn’t you love to have your messenger bag light up when you get a New Relic alert? We’ll be working on ideas like that, so come create the future with us.

If you’re going to be at JavaOne, don’t miss New Relic.
