Today’s enterprises have multiple clients, databases, and services. As more enterprises adopt microservices, using distributed tracing to monitor and provide a complete picture of a software system is an increasingly necessary skill for developers and DevOps engineers.
Priyanka Sharma, Ted Young, and Alex Masluk offer an introduction to the OpenTracing API, which allows engineers to understand how the components in their systems are interacting end to end. They explain its cross-language specification and walk you through a demo that follows a request all the way from the client to the database in order to solve a performance issue.
Priyanka Sharma is the director of cloud native at GitLab, which automates the software development lifecycle with AutoDevOps. She is also a contributor to the OpenTracing project and a member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. A former entrepreneur with a passion for building developer products and growing them through open source communities, Priyanka advises startups at HeavyBit Industries, an accelerator for developer products. Priyanka holds a BA in political science from Stanford University.
Ted Young is a software engineer at LightStep. He has spent the last 15 years building distributed systems in a variety of environments, including computer animation pipelines for VFX, national elections, and elastic compute platforms. Previously, he helped design the Diego Container Runtime for Cloud Foundry. Currently, he is focused on OpenTracing and tools for root cause analysis.
Alex Masluk is a senior technical account manager at LightStep, where he spends his time helping major software organizations integrate distributed tracing into their production systems. His work covers strategic rollout and sequencing efforts, service provisioning best practices, integrations with complementary technologies, and of course, hands-on instrumentation efforts with OpenTracing. Alex has worked closely with the engineering organizations at UnderArmour, DigitalOcean, InVision, and Sift Science (among others).
