Observability As Code Empowers Devs To Have More Reliable, More Observable Kubernetes Applications

In this episode of Let’s Talk, recorded at the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Detroit, I sat down with Austin Parker, Head of Developer Relations at Lightstep, to talk about their presence at one of the biggest shows of the year.

Parker said the event was the best place to interact with attendees and showcase some of its technologies. The company recently announced a demo of OpenTelemetry to let people see how it works and how it is implemented in practice. He said that OpenTelemetry Metrics has reached stability and it is being rolled out across a variety of languages.

Both OpenTelemetry Metrics and OpenTelemetry Demo are fully supported. At the event, Lightstep also showed Unified Observability for Kubernetes applications that leverages the new OpenTelemetry Metrics technology to let developers pivot from a metrics query in Kubernetes into an application-level trace. It enables them to correlate something that they see via Kubernetes monitoring with the actual root cause, as it were, from an application trace in their pods.

Aside from these announcements, Parker also talked about Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) and how Observability-as-Code is taking that same concept and empowering developers to have more reliable, more observable Kubernetes applications.

Check out the entire interview to dive deep into the other Lightstep topics we discussed during the show.
