On the Bleeding Edge of OpenTelemetry

Tracing and telemetry are popular topics right now, but the development is so quick that it also confuses:

* Starting with OpenTracing, then W3C Trace-Context, and now OpenTelemetry there are plenty of standards, but what do or don't they cover?
* How do the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and its projects like Jaeger play into that.
* Where is OpenTelemetry headed, and how can projects tie into it?

This talk gives an overview of standards, projects, and how they all tie together.


What Is Great About Modern Monolithic Applications?

You only have ONE repository, build artifact, deployment step, process, and version that you can run locally but still scale horizontally. Sounds too good to be true and you think it must be a theoretical example? Far from it — you might even be running one yourself. Though there are of course some tradeoffs that we are covering as well.
