Tech Meetup Glasgow - Observability for You and Me with OpenTelemetry (slides)

I've been a guest to the Tech Meetup in Edinburgh a few times over the years and was recently asked to drop in on the meetup of the same name in Glasgow.

This meetup is a generalist event for everyone in the Glasgow tech community. It welcomes people with all levels of experience, even if you are starting your journey into tech as a student, boot camper, or you're thinking of starting your development career, you are more than welcome.

I'm going to be sharing an introduction to both cloud native observability and touch on tracing with OpenTelemetry on 4 July 2024. I'm the second talk of the evening but it all kicks off at 18:00.

Below you'll find the slides I used and the links to the workshop referenced at the end to provide attendees with a hands-on workshop to build out the demo discussed at the event.

The slides below walked attendees through the background of what observability is, why it's hard, and how the CNCF project OpenTelemetry can put a dent in their observability solution.

The schedule was as follows:

  • 18:00 - 18:30, Drinks and Pizza
  • 18:30 - 18:45, Opening
  • 18:45 - 19:15, Talk 1 - HTMX: Completing HTML as a hypertext
  • 19:15 - 19:30, Break
  • 19:30 - 20:00, Talk 2 - Observability for you and me with OpenTelemetry
  • 20:00 - 20:15, Closing
  • 20:15, Drinks

The workshop referenced during the session is available online and can be followed at your own pace:

Many thanks to the attendees that came out on election night in the UK and joined us for this fun session getting started with OpenTelemetry.
