Drawing from his expertise as a Java Champion and six years of service on the Java Community Process Executive Committee, Ben discusses the critical role of Observability in modern software architecture, especially as applications continue to migrate to the cloud and adopt containerization.
Besides uncovering the key insights from his GSAS talk titled "The Why & What of Observability in 2023," Ben shares invaluable perspectives on the latest trends in software development, the emerging technologies that modern developers need to embrace, and the importance of software performance tuning for cloud-native applications.
Be prepared to gain unique insights and learn from one of the leading experts in the field as Ben offers a deep understanding of Observability, software development best practices, and the ever-evolving landscape of technology trends in this insightful interview. Don't miss out on the opportunity to get a glimpse of the knowledge he will impart at GSAS 2023.
Ben's talk at #GSAS23 will be called "The Why & What of Observability in 2023"
A brief summary of Ben's talk at GSAS 2023: As applications move to containers and migrate to the cloud, they become ever more complex, and it's increasingly important to monitor, analyze, and diagnose their behaviour. Observability is a new way of thinking about monitoring and understanding your applications. It’s supported by a growing range of open source tools and standards - part of the new wave of technologies that modern developers need to go fully Cloud Native. Join Ben Evans to get the basics of Observability, including the fundamentals of metrics, logs, and tracing. You'll learn how to achieve observability using OpenTelemetry, the emerging Open Standard for Observability, and we'll meet several other related OSS libraries and tools along the way.
The Global Software Architecture Summit (GSAS) is a 3-day event that aims to attract and connect software architecture experts from all over the world as well as all those interested in building working software to improve their skills, share knowledge, and connect.
The event features two days of talks by industry experts such as Mark Richards, Neal Ford, Nathaniel Schutta and one day of workshops. It is focused on software architecture topics as backend & frontend development, DDD, mobile development techniques, software architecture models & beyond.
The summit is held every year, so if you are interested in attending do not hesitate to buy your ticket. It is an excellent opportunity to give your career a boost and meet professionals in the industry.
