Logging tool no more: Observability sheds light on Dark's business growth and helps their customers scale

Dark is a programming language and platform that enables building serverless backends. There’s no infra, framework or deployment nightmares. It’s a new paradigm in software delivery. As a startup, the Dark team is constantly making decisions about where to invest in improvements to support customer needs. With Honeycomb, they can observe user behavior and make business decisions based on meaningful data.

Cloud Operations

Are you currently operating on a hybrid-cloud or multi-cloud architecture and wanting to standardize SLO’s, observability, and alerting across your platforms? In this video, Yuri Grinshteyn shows you common architecture patterns for a hybrid observability approach. Watch to learn how you can standardize observability across multiple cloud providers!

Learning from the visible past to accelerate the observable future

Observability is a highly visible topic in DevOps and Cloud Native discussions. But does observability need a bigger vision or broader applicability to break through to the next level? Can past precedents point a way to accommodate current and future technical trends? Metrics and logs are well understood, and distributed tracing has surfaced on the global developer consciousness. OpenTelemetry is a very good starting point for the next iteration, but it only addresses a subset of the problem space.

3 ways secrets management improves monitoring & observability

Monitoring — by its very nature — requires privileged access to internal and external services. In order to safely maintain visibility into critical systems, it’s vital to have some form of secrets management to manage authentication credentials (AKA, "secrets"), including passwords, keys, APIs, tokens, and any other sensitive pieces of information in your IT infrastructure.

Full Observability: From Push to Production

Understand what happens as soon as you do a code push until long after your code lands in production. Observability is looking into your code as it runs in production, and understanding the impact of your changes in real-time. With the right understanding, you make informed decisions, spending less time fixing, and more time improving. See how Codefresh and Honeycomb can help you push your code to production with confidence.

The Evolution of Open Source Observability

On May 27, the first OpenObservability Conference was held to bring together leaders, practitioners, and users of leading open source observability tools for sessions on the experiences, strategies, and future of the industry. For the Logz.io team, as long-time proponents of open source, it was rewarding to see everyone come together to explore the challenges and opportunities of open source observability.

Applying Observability - In Conversation with Nitzan Shapira of Epsagon

Today we hear from Nitzan Shapira, Epsagon CEO, about the latest exciting Epsagon product announcements, how Applied Observability is needed to make sense of ever more complex applications and environments, and how the role of Ops and Monitoring is evolving as part of the new "Cloud 2.0".

A Next Step Beyond Test Driven Development

The most successful software development movement of my lifetime is probably test-driven development or TDD. With TDD, requirements are turned into very specific test cases, then the code is improved so the tests pass. You know it, you probably use it; and this practice has helped our entire industry level up at code quality. But it’s time to take a step beyond TDD in order to write better software that actually runs well in production. That step is observability driven development.
