New Relic Will Be Our Lunch 2.0 Host for August

While Rick soldiers through a very long day, a 30 hour one to be exact, the staff here must pick up the slack. So, here goes.

New Relic will be our gracious Lunch 2.o hosts on August 18, 2010.

Not familiar with them? They are a San Francisco-based startup, funded by Benchmark Capital and Trinity Ventures, that just so happens to have a satellite office here in the Rose City.

They provide cloud-based tools to monitor, optimize and troubleshoot Java, Ruby and JRuby web applications, including some you might have heard of like Highrise and Basecamp.

That’s right, 37Signals uses New Relic RPM. So do AboutUs and a whole mess of other customers.

Oh, and they’re hiring in Portland.

New Relic may be a first-time host, but Bjorn Freeman Benson isn’t. While at the Eclipse Foundation, he hosted a Lunch 2.0 way back in November 2008.

Let’s hope this Lunch 2.0 doesn’t feature rain, like that one did. Although, the way things are going, that’s not a gimme by any stretch of the imagination.

Here’s the skinny:

Hosts: New Relic

Where: 421 SW 6th Avenue, Portland, OR 97205

When: August 18, 2010 from 12 PM to 2 PM

RSVP on Upcoming

As always, please RSVP for yourself and any guests you plan on bringing, so the hosts will know how much food they need. Also, if you’re vegan/vegetarian, make sure to shout out in the comments on the Upcoming event, or go hungry, your choice.
