This month, we're going to take an interactive look at the state of monitoring and observability in a virtual whiteboard discussion facilitated by OG CloudAustinites Ernest Mueller (engineering manager at a chaos engineering startup) and Peco (product manager at an application performance monitoring company).

Back in the earlier days of DevOps we had #monitoringsucks and there was a lot of work to improve the state of the art there. Eventually it turned into #monitoringlove. Then we were told we should do observability instead. Traces and prometheus are the magic combo right?!? Now when I talk to people their monitoring stance seems actually a bit worse than it was 5 years ago.

We'll discuss what you, the real practitioners, are doing for monitoring and observability, what works, what doesn't, what the trends are, what's worth it... Come ready to share how you do it!
