How Observability Relates to DevOps, SRE, & Cloud Native
Welcome to The Authors’ Cut Series In this session, we unpack how observability fits into the landscape of other modern practices, such as DevOps, SRE (Site Reliability Engineering), and cloud native movements. This session also addresses example technologies used to build cloud native apps, such as containers, service meshes, microservices, and immutable infrastructure. In addition, we also cover leading-edge practices such as chaos engineering, feature flagging, and other forms of progressive delivery. Bonus! Our SRE, Fred Hebert, shares how observability shapes Honeycomb’s practices. If you’re interested in the organizational and workflow patterns of the most successful engineering teams, this is a great session for you. About This Series Welcome to The Authors’ Cut series. In writing the O’Reilly Observability Engineering book, our goal is to help you achieve production excellence, based on our experiences building and operating commercial SaaS products at scale, and as creators of observability tooling for high-performance engineering teams. These are interactive sessions led by authors Charity Majors, Liz Fong-Jones, and George Miranda where you’ll discuss concepts in the book, see how to apply them in Honeycomb, and get advice on strategy and implementation in your world.
