Accelerate CI/CD with Observability

 

Summary:


Welcome to The Authors’ Cut Series
We are joined in this session by Frank Chen, Senior Staff Software Engineer, Slack, who dives into how Slack gained powerful troubleshooting insights by applying observability to their software delivery practice. We also delve into specific continuous integration (CI) / continuous deployment (CD) architectures and how observability can be used to debug pipeline issues.

Topics include:
- Observability in CI/CD. Why using observability in your build pipelines is as important as using it for production services. (Chapter 14)
- Instrumenting Pipelines. How to think about configuring client dimensions in tests for meaningful traces. (Chapter 14)
- Accelerating your software builds. By using context and queries to investigate flaky tests, create actionable alerts, and streamline pipeline performance, debugging, and analysis (Chapter 14).
- A Honeycomb Demo. Showcasing Buildevents to help you debug and improve your builds.
