Attendees should be familiar with web topics around application development or operations and have experience with tools like cURL and SSH. Application programming abilities are not necessary.
Attendees need a laptop with Internet access and the ability to run tools like SSH and cURL. DigitalOcean will provide all server resources.
This tutorial is for you because:
You work in Ops and need to keep track of how your systems are running.
Writing an application is only half the battle. Once an application goes to production, insight is required to determine how it’s performing, and it is up to developers and operations teams to capture the data for future analysis. This data includes logs, metrics, and errors. The insights this data reveals allow developers to build more resilient systems in the future.
Bryan Liles walks attendees through scenarios that will allow them to view application metrics and logs and capture errors for further analysis. You’ll learn how to configure systems to capture relevant data, how to expose systems to logging and metrics as a practice rather than an afterthought, and how to use measurement as an integral part of your system design and operation.
We will use a Go application in this session, but the lessons apply to multiple languages.
Over the course of this workshop, attendees will:
