Session Name: From Monitoring to Observability: Left Shift your SLOs
This talk invites you into a developer’s tale about ops deployment scalability, availability threshold definitions and measuring application performance. Estimated SLOs could be simulated early in the development process. New building blocks come to play: Quality gates and chaos engineering - is it possible to left shift the SLOs in your CI/CD pipelines? Attendees go on a hands-on deep dive into cloud native resources with Keptn and Prometheus as quality gates, and explore ways of chaos engineering with Litmus. This includes best practices and tips to start in a cloud native deployment journey.
