o11ycon 2018 - Discussion Findings
At the first-ever observability conference, attendees broke out into various groups to have open space-style discussions (OSSD) on various sub-themes in observability. This document summarizes those lightning talks presenting our OSSD Sessions - carving out what our industry means when we talk about observability.

PLAY WITH EVENTS
In May 2018, Honeycomb experienced a product outage which we documented in our post-mortem on our blog. We uploaded the (anonymized) production data from that outage into a sandbox environment of Honeycomb.
In this scenario we'll walk you through using observability to diagnose this specific outage. In 16 steps (~15 minutes) you'll go from "being paged" to breaking down the issue by high-cardinality events as you debug the outage.
PLAY WITH TRACING
Honeycomb Tracing shows the time and resources taken to service any request, making it easy to diagnose bottlenecks, optimize performance, and understand how your system processes requests.
In this scenario we'll walk you through using observability (via tracing) to diagnose reported API slowness from a handful of users. In 13 steps (~15 minutes) you'll go from alert to the individual request that triggered the issue.
O11ycast - The Observability Podcast
In episode #1 of O11ycast, Merian Ventures' Rachel Chalmers and Honeycomb.io's Charity Majors dive into a few ways observability can drive fundamental changes in the way we approach software development.
In episode #2 of O11ycast, Rachel and Charity are joined by Christina Noren, Chief Product Officer for CloudBees, to look at the ways both the development life cycle and the role of the developer have evolved.
In episode #3 of O11ycast, Rachel and Charity are joined by Paul Biggar, co-founder and CTO of Dark as well as founder of CircleCI, to discuss how microservices and automation have shaped the developer landscape.
