Fabulous overview of what O11y is & isn't

Scotty Taylor

Nice and simple way to describe what observability is, isn't, and how you should be looking at implementing it in your org. The Olly knight was witty and has obviously sat in the DevOps/SRE seat before based on his insightful thoughts/experiences.

I really liked that it focusses just on the core concepts, giving a nice overview over the most important aspects, namely the overall architecture of observability platforms, their goals, and some of the core things to watch out for when building one, for example data silos. I would recommend taking this 30 minute course for anybody working on distributed systems who hasn't been exposed to observability as a concept or wants to get some poignant overview on the field. Disclaimer: I am employee of the company Observe, Inc., that created this training. The above is my (as best as possible) honest and unbiased opinion.
