In the development of modern applications, anything that is to be considered "web scale" necessitates the need for distributed systems. With the increased complexity inherent is these systems, there is increased difficulty in observing the behavior of these systems from development through production operation. With a diligent approach that keeps in mind principles from the international DevOps software development movement, combined with the ability to observe metrics, logs, and traces, we can develop and operate these applications confidently. This talk will be of interest to anyone interested in metrics and monitoring, DevOps, and gaining insight into behaviors of their own software.

Dave Mangot is the author of Mastering DevOps from Packt Publishing. He’s currently the global head of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) for the SolarWinds Cloud companies and an accomplished systems engineer with over 20 years' experience. He has held positions in various organizations, from small startups such as Terracotta to multinational corporations such as Cable & Wireless and Salesforce, in positions ranging from systems administrator to architect. He has led the transformations of multiple companies both in operational maturity and in a deeper adherence to DevOps thinking. He enjoys time spent as a mentor, speaker, and student to so many talented members of the community.

While there will be light refreshments available, feel free to "brown bag" it and bring in food from the outside to eat during the social hour.
