Level up with The Relicans at FutureStack

I am excited to personally invite you to FutureStack 2021! This will be my first year at the conference with my friends from The Relicans, and we can’t wait to see you there.

3 keynotes, 12 hands-on workshops, 50 sessions

FutureStack 2021 is a free, online conference where New Relic is bringing together Data Nerds to learn, share, and get inspired about observability — while we have fun!

Here's what to expect:

  • 3 Keynotes and on-demand recordings to watch anytime.
  • 12 Workshops with hands-on demos.
  • 50 Sessions led by Data Nerds like you and me.

You can also choose from four different learning tracks, whether you have a particular focus or want to start with the basics, we’ve got you covered with:

  • Extending New Relic One to connect technology to business performance
  • Getting Data In to instrument everything and send data to the Telemetry Data Platform
  • AI/ML-Powered Observability to wrangle complexity with AIOps
  • Modern Architectures from containers to serverless apps

The Relicans welcome you to Nerd Island

In addition to the tracks mentioned above, there will be several side tracks, including Networking, FutureHack, Relax and Mingle Active, Swag Stack and — our personal favorite — the Nerd Island.

The Nerd Island is where you can come to hang out with us from The Relicans. We will play Minecraft, live stream, write code together, and share talks from our team. We're especially excited to welcome special guests Kelsey Hightower, Andy Baio, and Sam Aaron!

Here is a spoiler, just for you:

On the Nerd Island and on the Nerd Island ONLY, you can be one of the first users of Skittish, an interactive, playful virtual event space! Inside Skittish, you can be a cute animal, explore Nerd Island, connect with friends (that also happen to be cute animals) via voice chat, and watch some great talks.

Sign up and join us!

FutureStack is May 25-27, 2021, and you can save your spot now. Just click here to sign up, and you will be all set! Until then, keep an eye out as we share more about upcoming sessions and surprises we have planned for FutureStack.

We can't wait to see you at FutureStack!

I'm really looking forward to the arcade and talking about Docker! There'll be Relicraft, and 7 Billion Humans, and @aaronbassett has a quiz game he built!
