We’re sending you on a hunt for New Relic treasure…
Improve your product, improve your business, and keep your customers happy. That’s what we’re all about here at New Relic. The New Relic Platform is designed to give you instant end-to-end intelligence across your customer experience, application performance, and dynamic infrastructure. So we’ve designed a Treasure Hunt that will take you from one end of our platform to the other, and then back again.
Some of the clues are technical, some are just for fun, and all of them are silly. We want you to engage by sharing with the community how you fared on this treasure hunt—share your screenshots in this thread when you solve any of the clues listed below. All participants that get this far will win booty! (…which is fun community badges and even New Relic swag.)
Don’t use all the products in the clues? Give them a try! All of the New Relic products listed below are available for you to trial. It’s usually just a click of a button in the New Relic UI, but if you have any trouble, let us know. Note: you can only trial a product once.
Solve, execute, and share what you learn from the clues listed below in this thread, earn treasure!
Anyone who solves one clue and shares will get a badge! Solving 5 clues will get you a badge and a New Relic sticker pack and solving 10 clues will get you all of those things, PLUS a coffee mug!
- Proudly display your solved clues by posting screenshots as a reply to this post
