Learn Honeycomb in just a few hours

Honeycomb Developer Week is for developers who haven’t yet found the time to sharpen their observability chops. Designed for high-impact, time-efficient learning, you get both hands-on training and snackable sessions that quickly teach you leading observability practices with Honeycomb. You will learn new skills that help you regain precious time lost on debugging mysteries so that you can spend more time delivering fast and reliable customer experiences.

Get Started With Honeycomb

9:00 a.m.—12:00 p.m.

Intro to Observability With Honeycomb Workshop

With Liz Fong-Jones, Principal Developer Advocate at Honeycomb and Jessica Kerr, Developer Advocate at Honeycomb

This workshop covers both the theory and practice of observability. You’ll familiarize yourself with both Honeycomb and OpenTelemetry with hands-on exercise, and also learn how to introduce observability into your organization.

You will learn:

  • The differences between monitoring, telemetry signals, and observability
  • Sending trace data to Honeycomb from a sample application via OpenTelemetry
  • Practicing the core analysis loop to identify performance issues using Honeycomb with the Home, Query Builder, Distributed Trace, and Raw Rows data views
  • Adding application-specific metadata to further enrich your traces
  • Sharing query results with your team

9:25 a.m.—9:45 a.m.

Honeycomb Distributed Tracing

With Brian Langbecker, Solutions Architect at Honeycomb

See how Honeycomb integrates distributed tracing into your debugging workflows, with no context switching required.

9:45 a.m.—10:05 a.m.

Finding Outliers With BubbleUp

With Adam Hicks, Solutions Architect at Honeycomb

Learn how using BubbleUp in your debugging workflow helps you analyze billions of rows of data across thousands of high-cardinality fields to quickly spot outliers that may be the source of hidden issues.

10:15 a.m.—10:35 a.m.

Debuggable Service Level Objectives

Speaker TBA

Honeycomb’s service-level objectives (SLOs) offer more actionable alerts with less noise. They’re also integrated right into your debugging workflows.

10:35 a.m.—10:55 a.m.

Honeycomb Metrics

With Michael Sickles, Solutions Architect at Honeycomb

Observability is great for applications, but metrics can be useful for debugging system issues. See how those two debugging workflows integrate in Honeycomb.

10:55 a.m.—11:15 a.m.

Pipelines and Buildevents

With Pierre Tessier, Director, Solutions Architects at Honeycomb

Your build pipelines can also have observability. Learn how to debug your CI/CD workflows with Honeycomb.
