Abstract

Monitoring has been historically considered an afterthought of the software development cycle: something owned by the ops side of the room. But instead of trying to predict the various ways something might go sideways right before release, what might it look like instead to learn about our production systems in order to figure out what to build, and how to build it, and whom for?

Observability is all about asking new questions of your systems -- and is something that should be built into the process of crafting software from the very beginning. In this talk, we'll explore what it looks like in practice, so that production stops being just where our development code runs into issues: it becomes where part of our development process lives.
