Another Epic APM User Conference

APM User Conference session

Back by popular demand, volume two of our APM User Conference was another resounding success!

This was a peer-driven technical conference for our Aternity APM and EUEM users. After an inaugural event in Austin, TX last November, this time we held the event in Reston, VA, bringing it closer to home for our DC area customers. We plan to continue rotating through different locations every six to nine months, so if you have a strong preference for where we should have it next, especially if you are interested in hosting, let us know by emailing

By practitioners, for practitioners

From peer-to-peer interactions, technical “how to” sessions, and open discussions with our development teams, our users walked away with a wealth of knowledge, skills, and lots more product goodness to look forward to! We even included a pre-conference optional training day. So, if you weren’t already familiar with the product, you could learn the basics before attending the main sessions.
