Duration: 3 hours

The automatic instrumentation included with many SDKs can help you understand how your applications interact with other services. But auto-instrumentation doesn’t provide useful context for things specific to your code. This workshop uses hands-on exercises where you make changes to a sample application instrumented with OpenTelemetry to see how those modifications help you get better insights with Honeycomb.

This workshop covers:

  • Manually creating spans and traces using OpenTelemetry SDKs in multiple languages
  • The parent / child relationship between spans and working with the current span in context
  • How trace propagation works across services and trace interoperability with other SDKs
  • Instrumenting a message queue pipeline on both the sending and receiving ends to make the entire transaction appear as a single trace

This workshop has capped participation. If we hit capacity, we will put you on the waitlist.
