A cluster is a busy place, and lots can happen.

Microservices, containers, polygot persistence, schedulers, and so on have enabled organizations to rapidly deploy a variety of applications. We can get up and running quickly, but then progress halts if we can’t understand our system.

In order to keep moving forward, we need to enforce structure in the right places, while not constraining the benefits of microservices. Just as event sourcing can help us structure communication among services, an evolvable grammar can structure our measurements to enable powerful insights and analytics. This grammar can help us increase cardinality in our logging and allow more tools to provide insight into what is going on.

In this talk, we will walk through how to use logging, OpenTracing, and grammar to improve event collection for later analysis.

Agenda:
Pizza and networking will begin at 6:00 PM. The talk will begin at 6:30 and we will wrap up at 7:30.
