This workshop is structured to help your organization successfully deliver value from distributed tracing. Topics covered in this session include:

  • A brief history of OpenTelemetry and distributed tracing
  • How to get instrumented with OpenTelemetry in under 10 minutes in Node.js
  • Common distributed tracing use cases and why they are the foundation for observability
  • Best practices and common pitfalls for distributed tracing
