We’ve made a lot of progress in monitoring & observability, with dozens of OSS & commercial tooling built to power the cloud native revolution. Yet, there is still a lot of confusion & friction with getting monitoring systems to really provide the insights we need for our business continuity & to prevent incidents & outages. On top of this, there are so many tools it’s hard to know what to use & when––OpenTelemetry, Prometheus, Grafana––it makes our head spin. This begs the question - why is cloud native observability still so hard? In this panel, we’ll tap into three powerhouses from the observability community––Charity Majors, Itiel Shwartz, and Jason Yee. Come armed with your most compelling questions about the state of the o11y union, wh alerts still suck, how those unknown unknowns still bring our systems down, and anything else you want to ask these experts. We’ll make sure you come away with the most practical tips to get your monitoring and o11y working FOR YOU.
