Two Firsts!

The first first, something I’ve written is live on the New Relic blog. Of course I’m also pretty pleased with the feature that it mainly discusses–Thread Profiling in Ruby–which is the first big chunk of code I’ve written that’s shipped so far.

Which actually leads to the next big news… I’ll be speaking at MountainWest Ruby Conf on Thread Profiling. This is the first talk I’ve had accepted to a conference, and I’m humbled to be on the same speaker page with Matz and Ward and so many other sharp folks. This time last year, I wouldn’t have dreamed that I’d be in this spot.

Working for New Relic is definitely paying off in more than just the day to day!
