Observability is a hot topic (and buzzword) in cloud-native applications, and for good reason: it’s impossible to both innovate quickly and maintain high reliability in distributed software applications, without effective observability. Observability is a complex topic that’s made more confusing by muddy marketing messages and an alphabet soup of new technologies and OSS projects. In this talk, Ben Sigelman will describe the overarching goals and architecture of an effective observability strategy, then focus on OpenTelemetry in particular: the what, the why, and the “how to get started.”
He will walk you though:
- The anatomy of observability
- How OpenTelemetry enables teams to better understand software performance and behavior
- Getting started with OpenTelemetry
After a 30 minutes talk, there will be 15 minutes for Q&A. We’d like to encourage you to submit your questions in advance.
A recording of the webinar and related materials will be shared with webinar attendees afterwards.
