Workshop (3h): Just Another Day in Operations

The Art of Keeping Stuff Running

Suppose you’re working for a software company and you’re tasked with making sure your server application is running smoothly at all times. How do you do that? Join this workshop to find out!

Running an application isn’t just about writing code and deploying it. You also have to make sure it runs. When your server runs out of disk space and there’s a random crash in the middle of the night, someone will have to get up and fix it, or your users will be unhappy.

But ideally, you could fix such issues before they happen. Monitoring is the answer. But how does it work? In this workshop, we will show you which tools you can use to predict the future and prevent failures before they occur. We provide a live service and you’ll be able to debug simulated issues, practicing your skills in a real-world scenario. You will need a laptop with internet access, and we will provide the rest.

This workshop does not require any pre-existing knowledge, we will teach you everything from scratch.
