October New Relic User Group Preview: Atlanta, Austin, and Denver

We had a great September bringing our New Relic User Groups to four major East Coast cities. This month we’ve got three more exciting city visits planned: Atlanta, Austin, and Denver!

If you live near any of these three cities, we hope you’ll join us for the chance to hear informative tech talks, meet the New Relic team, and, most important, network and connect with members of the New Relic user community in your area.

All of our events run from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m local time. In addition to great presentations, there will be plenty of time for networking and Q&A sessions with our speakers, along with complimentary food and drinks. Don’t miss out—reserve your spot today!

Estimably, a standalone service in the cloud, was one of the company’s first forays into the modern interpretation of DevOps, giving the whole team experience with continuous delivery and injecting an ops perspective into the entire process, from planning through deployment and monitoring.
