Dive Deep at the Observability Practitioners Summit

I’m happy to announce the Observability Practitioners Summit. This will be a single day, single track conference, co-located at KubeCon 2018 in Seattle. Talks will be focused on new developments and research in tracing, metrics, and related observability issues. Basically, a day of nerd talks for observability practitioners. No intro talks, product pitches, or basic overviews. We’ll be down in the details, discussing algorithms, techniques, and fundamental problems with observability at scale.

After the talks, we’ll have space for mingling and ad-hoc discussion groups, along with food and drinks. Lightstep is a core sponsor of the event, so we’ll be there. Come geek out with us!

Please note the CFP deadline is September 21st, so it’s coming up. Reach outReach out if you have any questions.

In addition to the conference, there will be space available for observability-related groups to meet and work on their projects in person. Fill in the CFP if you’re part of an observabilityobservability project (especially one working on interop and standardization) and are seeking meeting space for members to work together, before or after KubeCon.

We hope to see you in Seattle.
