Observability for Developers

Observability is a practice that helps provide better insights into application behaviour, to enable the earlier identification and rectification of application defects. Most developers come across observability when assigned a bug report from IT OPS with a log file attached, this log file usually contains any information that has been pumped to stdout()!!... usually not that helpful. There is a lot more to the practice of observability than this. In this session, we go through what developers should know to improve their applications observability when running on AWS. Using examples, we highlight some best practices, tools and services that you can leverage to help with observability for various application stacks running on AWS.
