DevOpsDays Amsterdam 2024 - Observability Metrics for You and Me with Prometheus (workshop)

Later this month I'm going to be in Amsterdam, close to home for once, at the lovely and well organized DevOpsDays Amsterdam 2024. I've been given the honor of hosting a three hour long workshop based on our work around getting started with metrics using the CNCF project Prometheus.

The event is three days of fun and sharing technology learnings from all corners of the industry. As the event site says, the Netherlands is home to a large, vibrant technology community. Amsterdam, in particular, has been a flurry of activity in the past several years, drawing attention from around the globe.

Devopsdays Amsterdam brings all disciplines, such as development, operations, QA, InfoSec, management, and leadership, together to discuss culture, tools and skills to make better organizations and products. The expectation is around 600 attendees this year and will be held from June 19-21, 2024 at the Pakhuis de Zwijger in the center of Amsterdam.

The first day is all about workshops, focusing on hands-on activities, from coding to cooperation in several parallel tracks in smaller settings. The format of the following 2 days includes a single track of 30-minute talks in the morning, followed by Ignite talks (5-minute, auto forwarding slides). 

Below is my workshop abstract and details.

My workshop is targeting attendees who have little or no experience with observability and metrics gathering in particular. It's a complete tour of all things needed to get started with the open source CNCF graduated project known as Prometheus.

Getting Started Workshop - Observability Metrics for You and Me with Prometheus

Ready to break free from vendor lock-in and predatory pricing from your SaaS observability vendor? It’s time to learn more about Prometheus, a free and open-source systems monitoring and alerting tool kit that enables you to discover, collect, and query your observability data. Join us for this workshop designed to expand your knowledge of open-source observability tools, including how they are used and how they are different from the proprietary instrumentation you use today. This hands-on workshop is designed to help central observability team leaders, engineering managers, and site reliability engineers (SREs) get enough background to start moving their teams away from proprietary instrumentation and get them started with open-source observability. During the workshop, you will install Prometheus, collect metrics, and learn how to effectively run it in your observability stack. Get started today and so your team can hit the ground running with open-source observability!

Date: Wednesday, 19 June 2024

Time: 13:00-16:00

Where: Pakhuis de Zwijger - Amsterdam, in the Ij Zaal (5th floor)

Looking forward to exploring Prometheus with the attendees and helping them on their observability journey.
