The AWS ecosystem is full of operations tooling for monitoring — CloudWatch being the biggest chunk of this. It’s great at telling you what’s going on right now in your system.
But what about using the best in class open source tooling to give you an even better view? How can we apply the principles behind observability to get a much better experience?
In this session, you'll cover implementing logging, metrics and tracing with the best available open source tools quickly and see what benefits [...]
