Observable Applications Using OpenTelemetry
OpenTelemetry is a CNCF sandbox project which standardizes application tracing and monitoring across multiple programming languages, protocols, platforms and vendors. In this talk we’ll provide a brief introduction to the OpenTelemetry project, explore some of its language libraries, demonstrate how they can be used to make distributed applications observable and look into some of the tricky parts in implementing distributed tracing as well as how they are handled by OpenTelemetry.
