OpenTelemetry featured at June 2022 IndyPy

The June 2022 edition of IndyPy — Indiana’s largest Python meetup founded in 2007 by Six Feet Up CTO and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Community Hero, Calvin Hendryx-Parker — featured a discussion of the importance of observability when coding. Roni Dover, a seasoned developer and product manager, walked through the benefits of using OpenTelemetry and associated tools to increase the production of high-quality code.

In his time working for teams both large and small, Dover has studied the role of observability in the development process. He notes that while there are many tools centered on pushing code into production, there are few that take data from production and prove that everything works as intended. Dover said the definition of done in DevOps needs to include getting feedback about your code, which typically isn’t possible for a developer without observability tools.

Enter OpenTelemetry. Dover introduces the open source observability tool in his presentation, which includes:

  • how to install and configure OpenTelemetry,
  • a demonstration of how to use OpenTelemetry using a sample API; and
  • tools that integrate with OpenTelemetry such as Jaeger, Grafana, and Prometheus.
