Please join us on Monday, Mar 12th for a special FutureTalks event diving deep on New Relic’s approach to technology leadership and culture. Tom Krazit of GeekWire will sit down with New Relic’s chief product officer, Jim Gochee, for a fireside chat to discuss the lessons that Jim and his team have learned at New Relic, including how the company’s product team made a bold bet and disrupted itself 10 years in.

Tom and Jim will go deep on New Relic’s approach to engineering management and the implementation of DevOps culture and agile practices. How does a 10 year-old company change its team and product to keep innovating for the next decade? They’ll also discuss top tech trends that Jim is seeing with customers and in his travels around the globe. What’s real and what’s hype? And finally, they’ll touch on their perspectives on the Portland tech scene. How has Portland changed? What is possible for tech in Portland for the next 10 years?
