Build Systems that Drive Business
30–31 Oct 2018: Training
31 Oct–2 Nov 2018: Tutorials & Conference
London, UK

Schedule: Monitoring, Observability, and Performance sessions

The larger your applications get, the harder it is to understand their performance and troubleshoot problems. Increased complexity in applications and services requires new methods for monitoring and improved observability. In this track, you’ll learn best practices for
monitoring large-scale, complex, dynamic and distributed systems built on emerging architectures like microservices and serverless.
