Observability Observed

A presentation at DevOpsDays Austin in in Austin, TX, USA by fen aldrich

In DevOps, especially on the Ops side of the house, it seems you can’t outrun this Observability term, but what is it? Monitoring with a new name? A marketing gimmick for new infrastructure tools? Something about dynamic linear systems? And why should I care? And if I do care, how do I get started?

In 5 minutes or less we’ll introduce what Observability is, convince you to care, and give you some starting points and guidelines to think about as you get started with a slide reserved for “where to go from here”. Or for further discussion: let’s Open Space about that.
