The world of maintaining applications is shifting. Our Systems Administrators aren’t monitoring our application servers, it’s the SREs determining SLIs and SLOs for our Micro-Services and making sure our Cloud-Distributed systems are Observable in near-real time. It’s enough for buzzword burnout. Furthermore, the DevOps movement asking developers to work closer with our operations teams and handle on-call shifts! Does that mean you have to learn everything about DevOps and SRE just to keep doing what you truly love, building things out of code?
Not entirely, but just as SysOps folk have started to learn valuable lessons about codifying their work, so too can developers learn how to build more easily maintainable software from those that have to maintain it every day.
Without diving through the whole world of Software Reliability Engineering and systems monitoring, this talk will level set and give a crash course on Observability. Let’s cross-class some Ops with our Dev and build reliable, maintainable software together!
