David Josephsen
Developer Evangelist, Librato

Website | @DaveJosephsen

David Josephsen is the “Developer Evangelist” at His continuing mission: To help engineers world-wide close the feedback loop. He is also a sometime book-authoring blogger and purveyor of awkward conference talks.

He has never (not even once) used non-local goto. He speaks shell, Go, C, Python, Perl and a little bit of Spanish (in that order), and apologizes in advance for that thing he said (not the first thing, the other one. That first thing he totally meant to say and he refuses to redact it).

Come by and discuss: reducing alert fatigue through better planning; why we monitor things (and why asking makes monitoring better); using monitoring tools and techniques to prove out software engineering assumptions; and closing and shortening the feedback loop between Dev and Ops.
