The Authors’ Cut Series

The authors of O’Reilly Book: Observability Engineering Achieving Production Excellence, Charity Majors, Liz Fong-Jones, and George Miranda, are outspoken advocates for the human, technical, and business benefits of observability for modern systems. This book bridges both the theoretical and practical to show how a practice of observability results in better uptime, faster debugging, more innovation, and ultimately happier engineers and customers.

Interested in learning more about the more opinionated content left out of the book? Then you’ll love our new series called The Authors’ Cut where Charity, Liz, and George will host interactive sessions to take the theories covered in the book and apply them to real world use cases. Each session will include technical demos and examples of best practices used by high-performance engineering teams.
