Distributed Tracing with Open Telemetry

Needs a location

LeedsSharp are pleased to present our next in person event by Blake Wills

You've got a service that's "slow" or just plain broken, and you need to find out why. Could it be the application code (which bit)? Or is it the database (just one vicious query, or is everything dead)?
Or maybe it's one of the dependencies causing the issue?
In this talk, we'll look at instrumenting C# services, exporting spans through the OpenTelemetry collector, and how to use traces to find and debug real-world issues.

About Blake:
I'm a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) at Codat, who enjoys building observability and platform tooling, as well as debugging weird issues in production.
