Observability Engineering with Charity Majors
What is observability engineering, and why do you need some? While at NDC in Porto, Carl and Richard recorded a .NET Rocks Live with Charity Majors, one of the founders of Honeycomb. Charity talked about her experiences trying to understand how complex applications worked and failed at scale over her years of experience at Facebook and other companies. Ultimately, those experiences led to a book and the creation of Honeycomb. Lots of fun insight from someone who has fought the good fight - and some great questions from the audience!
Charity Majors is an ops engineer and CTO at honeycomb.io. Before this, she worked at Parse, Facebook, and Linden Lab, on operations and developer tools and always seemed to wind up running the databases. Co-author of O’Reilly’s Database Reliability Engineering and newly-released Observability Engineering. Charity loves free speech, free software, and single malt scotch.
