Hands-on Labs: Take Your APM Expertise to the Next Level

One of the more memorable sights from AppSphere 2016 in Las Vegas was the vast queue of delegates waiting to start their Hands-on Labs sessions. In fact, interest was so high that we accommodated some of our participating attendees into conference rooms just to handle the overflow traffic.

If you’re based in Europe and are an AppDynamics customer, the Hands-on Labs at our upcoming AppD Summit Europe are not to be missed opportunities to deepen your knowledge with local and U.S.-based subject matter experts who are there to share their insights with you. Taking place Thursday, May 4th, the day after the main conference, the Hands-on Labs present a unique opportunity to become fully enabled on features that matter to you most. Our trainers will deep dive into proven best practices from years of feedback gathered in the field.

A Lab for Every APM Topic

The Lab sessions vary in length from a few hours to a half day and right up to a full day, depending on their topic. With a ratio of one Lab assistant for every 15 attendees, and a live Q & A throughout, there’s every chance to ensure your particular training needs are catered to. The sessions are interactive and collaborative, and there’s ample time to share your challenges with peer experts.

Hands-on Labs are good for your organisation as your learnings will help drive improved quality application performance, and they’re good news for you, too. By increasing your skills, your value and profile can rise as you become recognised as a performance expert by colleagues and industry peers.
