Introduction To Observability [OBS101]

You’re Invited to a Workshop!

Tuesday, November 16 at 9:00 a.m. PT | 12:00 p.m. ET

Duration: 3 hours

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

OBS101 covers:

  • The velocity and reliability benefits of observability
  • The differences between monitoring, telemetry signals, and observability
  • How observability fits in with other progressive delivery techniques, such as continuous integration, feature flagging, and cloud-native microservices

This workshop has capped participation. If we hit capacity, we will put you on the waitlist.

  • 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
  • Carrying out a proof-of-concept to adopt observability in your organization

This is a 3-hour session requiring basic programming knowledge in at least one language: Java, Node.js, Python, .NET, or Golang. Attendees should have prior experience delivering and/or operating production software. Attendees must be able to join a Zoom webinar, including breakout rooms, and use a web browser to access the Honeycomb UI. 

Note: Attendees will not be able to complete hands-on portions of this workshop without meeting these requirements.
