Application Observability like you've never heard before

Track: Tools and techniques
Do you regularly spend sleepless nights desperately trying to make sense of cryptic error messages that seem to have been penned by a particularly grumpy Shakespearean ghostwriter? Are you frequently wondering about what your application is doing in production? Please join us on this example-driven journey where we go through some of the more advanced topics of Observability, and we dive into the toolsets available for you today to instrument your application so that it can tell you what it is doing and why. We will explore how to instrument your JVM-based application without vendor lock-in using Micrometer, OpenTelemetry, Grafana, OpenZipkin, Prometheus, OpenMetrics, etc, so you can have a much better sense of what is going on inside of your app.
