Got Observability Questions? Bring ‘em to Office Hours!

Over the past few months, we’ve been working hard to build a learning library to get you up to speed with OpenTelemetry, but I know that sometimes the docs just don’t go far enough. There’s questions that you can’t find an answer to, edge cases that haven’t been documented, or things that seem like they should work but stubbornly refuse to. Sometimes, you just need to reach out and talk to somebody for a while.

To this end, I’m going to be holding Observability Office Hours starting this month. Twice a week, you’ll be able to sign up for a time slot and bring your questions about OpenTelemetry (or OpenTracing), instrumentation design and implementation, or all things observability and get answers directly from myself or another Lightstep Developer Advocate. These are truly open - you don’t need to be a Lightstep user to participate, and they’re completely free of charge.

If you’d like to check availability or sign up for a session, go to my Calendly pagego to my Calendly page and select ‘Instrumentation Office Hours’. There’s a limit of 5 people per session, so that it doesn’t get too crowded. If you need more personalized assistance, then feel free to email me and we can set up a one-on-one.
