All Things Open 2023 - Terrifying Execs into Action (slides)

Today I presented at All Things Open the city of Raleigh, NC.

My talk this time around was all about sharing tips that are both easy and effective for you to apply immediately to your presentations, pitches, or stories as soon as you left my session. 

Along with these tips I promised to help you in terrifying your executives into action, so I was sure to give you tantalizing cloud native data to work with and showed how to weave it into your stories.

Below you'll find the original abstract and details of my session for All Things Open in October along with the slides from the session.

SRECon EU 2023 - Three Phases to Better Observability Outcomes (slides)

 "SREcon23 Europe/Middle East/Africa is a gathering of engineers who care deeply about site reliability, systems engineering, and working with complex distributed systems at scale. SREcon strives to challenge both those new to the profession as well as those who have been involved in it for decades. The conference has a culture of critical thought, deep technical insights, continuous improvement, and innovation."

This is SRECon23 EU and it was held in Dublin from 10-12 Oct this year. Having submitted a few ideas for talks, they settled on one as a lightning talk with the slot tightly defined as 16 slides, 15 seconds per slide, and a total of four minutes for the talk.

Below you'll fine the abstract for this talk and the slides I used, but without the automatic timer, so you need to count to 15 each slide and then advance yourself to see how that feels!

PromCon EU 2023 - Observability Recap in Berlin

As previously mentioned, last week I was on site at the PromCon EU 2023 event for two days in Berlin, Germany. 

This is a community organized event focused on the technology and implementations around the open source Prometheus project, including for example PromQL and PromLens.

Below you'll find an overview covering insights into the talks given, often with a short recap if you don't want to browse the details. Along with the talks it was invaluable to have the common discussions and chatting that happens between talks in the breaks where you can connect with core maintainers of various aspects of the Prometheus project.

Be sure to keep an eye on the event video playlist, as all sessions were recorded and will appear here.

Let's dive right in and see what the event had to offer this year in Berlin.
