Businesses are constantly having to deal with both keeping the lights on and moving their products and services forward. Today’s consumer has high expectations and a low tolerance for a poor digital experience. On top of that, they have lots of alternatives that they will happily leave you for if you cannot meet their needs. What this effectively means is that businesses have even less tolerance for wasting resources on changes that don’t meaningfully impact their customers. To do this, you need data. Specifically, you need data that spans across a variety of silos and functions within your organization.
This talk focuses on how we at New Relic leverage Insights as well as our entire toolchain to manage change at this level of pace, and how some of our customers do it. In addition to that, we’ll talk about recent releases on Insights, what we’re doing next, and how we plan to evolve the product over the next year.
Planning for elections at a major media company is an exercise in preparing for scale. In order to scale efficiently we need to understand the true pains of scaling in our application. See how USA Today uses New Relic to pro-actively prepare for a major news event like the United States presidential election and how we improve the efficiency of our reactions to unplanned events.

New Relic has many powerful tools for monitoring your application performance and end-user experience. In this session targeted at new users of APM, you will learn the simplest ways to drill-down into problem transactions and error traces to uncover performance problems in your application. You’ll also get a glimpse at some new features, the power of Insights, and learn useful techniques to visualize your data by building a performance dashboard that helps you understand how your applications are performing and basic troubleshooting techniques to make them better.
In this session, you will learn how to use New Relic Browser to monitor your application’s client-side performance and troubleshoot performance problems. Using data from real applications, you’ll get to practice using Browser’s dashboards and traces to quickly identify the cause of slow page-load times. You will also learn how New Relic Synthetics differs from New Relic Browser. You’ll learn how to configure the different types of Synthetics monitors, and how to view and interpret the data they capture.
We hope to demonstrate and then have each user practice using features like key transactions and server monitoring to configure alert policies, so New Relic can proactively notify you if your applications or servers start to have a problem.
This is the hands-on lab portion of How to Get Immediate Value from Application Performance Monitoring (bring your laptop). You’ll be invited to a live and interactive demonstration of an application environment in APM to put into practice the techniques you learned in the previous session to understand and troubleshoot your applications.

The phrase "Mobile First" was coined in 2009 by Luke Wroblewski, inspiring a generation of app developers to simplify and focus on what matters most to users. But the Firsts didn‘t stop there: "Cloud First" emerged as cloud service providers began commoditizing scalability; as developers have come to terms with real-world network conditions, even web apps have become "Offline First."
In their years at Tableau, Josh and Eric have been compiling a list of things to consider "first" when architecting new apps, sites, systems, and features. In this talk they‘ll quickly expound on all the "firsts" you should be considering, and dive deeper into what it means to be "Data First."

Applications running in a typical data center are static entities. Dynamic scaling and resource allocation are the norm in AWS. Technologies such as Amazon EC2, Docker, AWS Lambda, and Auto Scaling make tracking resources and resource utilization a challenge. The days of static server monitoring are over. In this session, we examine trends we’ve observed across thousands of customers using dynamic resource allocation and discuss why dynamic infrastructure fundamentally changes your monitoring strategy. We discuss some of the best practices we’ve learned by working with New Relic customers to build, manage, and troubleshoot applications and dynamic cloud services.
In this fun and informative session New Relic customers will show us their favorite dashboards and tell us why they created them, who uses them and why they love them. Join us and live the nerd life!

Our customers continue to ask us for best practices, and we’ll be providing you with information about three of the most commonly missing pieces in mobile app development today.
We will talk about the importance of performance as a feature, mobile app code as part of a more encompassing mobile stack, and the mobile app team as part of a broader team responsible for the success of mobile apps.
Shaped by conversations with our customers on the challenges they’re facing, we will share a real-world example of how to use New Relic to measure and debug some of the most complex issues that affect app users.
You know these roles: the rock star, who is always rolling out a new demo or installing a new technology in your stack; the builder, who makes it reliable and makes it scale; the janitor, who cleans up all your messes, writes your docs, and tweaks your configs. Grow an engineering team to a certain size, and these roles reveal themselves and cement themselves into your processes.
You come to rely on these roles and the people who fill them. And that‘s bad.
Yes, rock stars get the spotlight, while builders toil away in the background, and janitors are forgotten. But it‘s not all about glory. Pigeonholing engineers hurts everyone and can slow down your engineering organization in the long run. If you‘re only a rock star, you‘ll never understand scale or user experience. If you‘re only a builder, you‘ll never learn to write clean configs or care about future use cases. If you‘re only a janitor, you‘ll never appreciate change or technical growth. You need to be all three to succeed.
New technologies are making microservices and large distributed systems more compelling every day, but how do you take an existing legacy software deployment into that bright future? How can you do it without rewriting everything at once and disrupting customers? Learn how New Relic built an entirely new time series data storage and processing backend alongside the legacy one without dropping a byte of customer data. By using Kafka, Docker, and healthy DevOps collaboration, you can create an reliable process for cracking apart monolithic software.
Building great products means dedicating your Engineering organization to innovation. But what do you do when success and growth have started to get between your teams and the innovation you need to stay on top? At New Relic, we went back to our #datanerd roots to solve this problem and ended up giving our engineers far more control than anyone thought possible.
Hear first-hand from an engineer on the Insights team and from our Chief Architect about what it was like to let our engineers select their own teams and make their own rules, how we nearly chickened out, and why we think this is the future of engineering.
Modern client-side applications used by a global audience are more powerful and complex than ever before. At the same time, the number of tools and techniques for optimizing apps for performance also continues to grow. This talk takes the approach that it’s beneficial to learn from mistakes and discusses how to design, build and monitor a bleeding edge, cloud-hosted, container-native, painfully slow application with terrible customer experience. Using real world data and techniques gathered from some of the darkest performance corners of the web, this talk will cover how CDNs, modern single-page app frameworks, and emerging new protocols like HTTP/2 are making building slow apps more difficult than ever, and will share how bad infrastructure, application, and front-end choices impact customer experience in different ways.
