Observing your applications from development through production

DOP312, DevOps and Developer Productivity

  • Adnan Bilwani
  • Bobby Hallahan

Implementing observability differs at various stages of the software development lifecycle. In development, detailed logging and tracing are necessary to understand application behavior. In testing, logging and tracing are needed but in varying levels of detail and must be augmented by new metrics. In integration and production, it’s necessary to correlate and contextualize large volumes of data with dashboards that encompass metrics, alarms, and notifications connected to internal and external events. In this session, explore the mechanisms, mental models, and tools (including Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, AWS X-Ray and Amazon DevOps Guru) that top-performing teams use to observe applications throughout various stages of the software development lifecycle.

On AWS, details matter: Why full-stack observability wins (sponsored by Splunk)

Hacia la resiliencia continua

SPA203, Spanish

  • Isabel Huerga Ayza

Tradicionalmente, los equipos de desarrollo se han centrado en evitar las disrupciones construyendo sistemas complejos y robustos en los que es complicado hacer cambios.
