Session Name: Reducing the Churn: Put an End To Constant Redeploy Cycles With Continuous Observability
Bug in production are a fact of life. They're the spores of our industry, even the best CI/CD processes can't eliminate them all. DevOps revolutionized the industry and made high availability commonplace. Part of the process was strict control over server/container deployment including strict limits on R&D. That's great for long term stability. But it makes the process of tracking a production issue MUCH harder. R&D needs to go through logs, or observability tools hoping to find the root cause. If they can't find it they need to add logs/instrumentation and go through CI/CD again... And again... And again...This slows down development, ops and leaves potentially critical bugs in production. It's still better than giving R&D direct access to production. This is the problem solved by continuous observability. It lets developers debug a production system without the risks. In this session we will discuss continuous observability. How it can be used by developers and ops. How to deploy, secure it and more.
