  • “People used to take me seriously. Then I became a software vendor“
    It should be noted that this is a very oblique ad for That in no way impugns the content of the post, and in fact, it's given the content of the post that I feel compelled to point out that, ultimately, this is an ad. Because what is sales and advertising, anyway? It's just a way to get you to buy a product, and you can't do that if you've never even heard about the product. I'm not currently... - Source: Hacker News / 3 days ago

    Very cool to see is doing that. I'm about to embark on my distributed tracing learning journey, this makes me want to try honeycomb right away. - Source: Reddit / 25 days ago
  • Is there a beginners guide to adding observability to your applications?
    Caveat: I work for a vendor in the O11y space ( as a Developer Advocate, however, this advice is generic, not specific to our platform. - Source: Reddit / 26 days ago
  • KubeCon North America 2022: A Retrospective
    I spent Day 2 at the Colony Club to attend OTel Unplugged. This event was sponsored by Lightstep, Honeycomb, New Relic, Splunk, Dynatrace, Crowdstrike, and NGINX. I came into the event not knowing what to expect. I can sometimes clamp up when I’m around folks that I don’t know, but because I was helping with the event check-in, I got to say hello to a number of the attendees, which helped break the ice. And it... - Source: / 5 months ago
  • Honeycomb, Python, and I: an OpenTelemetry Horror Story (With a Happy Ending)
    It's no surprise that my apps are mostly written using Sanic as I'm pretty involved with the project. I've been wanting to start testing honeycomb out as well, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to try out. - Source: / 12 months ago
  • Introducing the @nxpansion/opentelemetry-tasks-runner
    With this complexity, however, developers need a way understand how their build process is performing. CI platforms have come a long way help deliver these insights about your pipelines and workflows, but if you're using Nx, you're still probably left wondering "What is going on when I run nx affected build?" Nx Cloud is a great first step to see build performance and statistics, but that data still lives in the... - Source: / over 1 year ago

  • "Why are my service's requests so slow?!"
    Honeycomb can be used to help identify the best "bang for your buck" in terms of time spent optimizing for performance. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • $SPLK - perspective from a software engineer on a great value long tech play
    On value relative to competitors, like I said, investing across the board (check out Series B funded for a cool innovative start up that will one day probably IPO) in monitoring is good sense long-term. Splunk is different, because it's a lot like Tesla's P/E situation. Splunk dumps money on its people and huge marathon sales conventions. It dumps money on customer experience. It HEMMORAGES money.... - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
