Are proprietary monitoring solutions too clunky, rigid and expensive for the specific needs of your fast moving team? Join me as I detail how data collection, storage and visualization can be accomplished in simple, and cost effective ways using ALL open source software! You’ll hear stories from the field of how 3 different companies that I’ve worked with at Timescale have gone about implementing their open-source observability stack, how their configurations have fared and the pros and cons of each approach. We’ll also architect an application monitoring system using tools like Prometheus, PostgreSQL and Grafana.

You’ll walk away with the foundation for how to implement your own observability system using open source software, as well as inspiration for how to proceed based on the real world experience of others.
