Sysadmins: You're All Developers Now

Forrester IT

In the age of the customer, admins need to be just as dynamic as their developer brethren. In other words, you need to become a developer. While you will learn much of this from developers, you will also impress on them key sysadmin principles like standardization, dependability, and security. In fact, the final evolution of this exchange is application and operations developers joining forces in a powerful mind-meld of talent. Application Development Methodologies.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.
