How we went from 1 million to 1 billion events without throwing everything away

In startup time, 6 years practically stretches into prehistory. Technologies come in and out of fashion, patterns become anti-patterns, frameworks are born and die (…and then there’s Javascript). But what does it mean at business scale? Let’s take a technical look at the choices and consequences in a long-running codebase, and how it changes to support a business.

We will take a tour of New Relic’s history – examining database design choices, Ruby patterns, Javascript frameworks, and supporting deprecated libraries – and emerge the other side with insight on how to best survive the past while still innovating for the future.
