It’s a hot time here in Jenkinsville as we kick off September! The JUC Organizing Committee is happy to report that we’re just a little bit overwhelmed by the community interest in the Jenkins User Conference on October 2 in San Francisco, the Sunday before JavaOne starts. Registration has been open for less than 3 weeks, and we already have 211 people signed up to join the community for a day of Jenkins learning, interactive discussions, and fun!

This week alone, two new sponsors have also stepped up to help make the conference (and beer) FREE for all. We’re thrilled to have New Relic and Sauce Labs join us as Bronze sponsors! Both companies are recognized cloud thought leaders and CloudBees Ecosystem partners .

  • New Relic provides real-time visibility into performance analytics, real user monitoring, web transaction tracing, availability monitoring, and much more. The all-in-one web application performance management provider for the cloud and the datacenter, New Relic represents the next generation of application monitoring. Used by more than 10,000 companies, its SaaS solution gives developers real-time visibility into user experiences and application performance. With a single tool designed to optimize cloud architectures, your application team can:

  • Measure front-end performance including browser response, page load times, and Apdex

  • Monitor app performance at the component level and spot potential bottlenecks

  • Determine if performance issues are in the front end, the app, or the network

- Sauce Labs , the web application testing company and home of Selenium in the cloud, provides a cloud-based service that allows you to run automated cross-browser functional tests (as well as manual tests) fast, while eliminating the need for you to maintain your own test infrastructure. Like CloudBees, Sauce Labs alleviates the headache and organizational overhead incurred when developers spend their time managing systems rather than writing code. By providing media-rich results, Sauce also improves the clarity and speed of communication between developers and QA teams so bugs are eliminated more quickly.

So if you want to test your web application UI against a variety of different OS/browsers mixes, just click a button with Sauce. Your tests will automatically launch in parallel on those specific OS/browser targets, instantly, with no setup or maintenance effort. And if you are really serious about UI testing, the mix of Sauce Labs and Jenkins-as-a-Service provided by DEV@cloud is the perfect match.

The few remaining sponsorship slots are disappearing fast, so if you’re interested in joining the party, drop a note to . Also, if you want to share your own knowledge with the community – act now! Paper submissions are due today. And of course, sign up to join the fun on October 2 !
