Cloud Native London Meetup - 3 Pitfalls Everyone Should Avoid with Cloud Native Observability

 I'm heading back to the Cloud Native London meetup this week, having been given the opportunity to present due to a speaker canceling at the last minute.

I am always happy to help out and the hop to London from the Netherlands is a short and easy trip.

They have +7,000 members and it is, "...the official Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Meetup group dedicated to building a strong, open, diverse developer community around the Cloud Native platform and technologies in London." You can also find them on their own slack channel, so feel free to drop in for a quick chat if you like.

That session I presented last time in January of 2023 was about the pitfalls everyone should avoid with cloud data and they live streamed it with a recording available online if you want to revisit.

Tomorrow, on Wednesday, 10 January in London I'll be sharing some brand new content on the pitfalls of cloud native observability.

The event details can be found online, but here is the invite email details sent when you register:

The agenda for the January Cloud Native London Meetup is now up. If you're not able to join us, don't forget to update your RSVP before 10am on Wednesday! Or alternatively, join us via the Youtube stream without signing up.

My talk is a new idea that I've been working on for the last year. I want to share insights into the mistakes and pitfalls that I'm seeing customers and practitioners make repeatedly on their cloud native observability journey. Here's my talk abstract:

3 Pitfalls Everyone Should Avoid with Cloud Native Observability

Are you looking at your organization's efforts to enter or expand into the cloud native landscape and feeling a bit daunted by the vast expanse of information surrounding cloud native observability? When you're moving so fast with agile practices across your DevOps, SRE's, and platform engineering teams, it's no wonder this can seem a bit confusing. Unfortunately, the choices being made have a great impact on both your business, your budgets, and the ultimate success of your cloud native initiatives. That hasty decision up front leads to big headaches very quickly down the road. In this talk, I'll introduce the problem facing everyone with cloud native observability followed by 3 common mistakes that I'm seeing organizations make and how you can avoid them!

Looking forward to meeting everyone and if you can't attend, they will be live streaming from a video feed, so drop in virtually!
