From November 11-13, some of the greatest developer and technological minds will gather at FutureStack15 in San Francisco to showcase their incredible advancements in the world of modern software. There is still time to grab a ticket and, as an extra incentive, we’ve put together the top five reasons to book a trip to the City by the Bay:

The Woz

One of the original titans of tech, Steve Wozniak has garnered a near-mythological status in the developer world. The Apple co-founder is currently the Chief Scientist at Fusion.io and will be sitting down for a fireside chat at FutureStack15. If there was ever a "can’t miss" keynote — this is it. 

The Community

There is perhaps no other event that packs in more developer talent under one roof. Whether you’re looking to make professional connections or simply pick the brains of incredibly talented innovators, this is a chance to talk to some incredible people. 

The Lineup

The Woz may be the headliner, but FutureStack has no shortage of brilliant speakers. From Paul Cheesbrough (CTO, News Corp) to Colin Bodell (CTO, Time Inc.) to Jason Chan (Dir. of Engineering, Netflix) to Sam Lambert (Director of Technology, Github) to a slew of New Relic executives and engineers, this year’s event has two days packed full of consistently engaging content. 

The Bootcamp

For the first time, New Relic University will be hosting an 8-hour bootcamp on the opening day of the event. Once registered, you’ll learn how to deploy and configure New Relic APM in your applications, add custom instrumentation, and troubleshoot performance problems using transaction traces, error traces, thread profiling, and server monitoring. Could there be a better way to kick off a weekend in San Francisco?

The Man, the Myth, the Legend

There is no denying it. "Weird Al" Yankovic was a vital part of most childhoods. The four-time Grammy award winner is still churning out hits and he’ll be showcasing his talents at the FutureStack15 Kickoff Party. Begin nostalgic "Weird Al" video binge in 3...2...1…
