Observable Lightning Talks February 2024

Observable Lightning Talks is back with new speakers for the 5th edition. Come and join us to hear tips and tricks from Industry Experts.

Observable lighting talks open the stage to three speakers sharing their experiences, recommendations, best practices, and more.

And if you have any questions for our speakers, you can ask them during the live panel discussion.

Come and join us on the 20th of February for the new edition of Observable Lighting Talks.


The event will be broadcast live on Linkedin, Twitch, Facebook, and of course Youtube.

Observability and SRE practices rely on many frameworks available on the market. However, since technology evolves at a very fast pace, it can be difficult to keep track of the latest solutions and technologies and implement all the best practices.

To help you improve your practices and understand the best of breed of the latest technology, IsitObservable is launching a new Show: Observable Lightning Talks.

The concept is simple: Thought leaders from the observability industry will help us along in our technology journey.

Each Observable Lighting Talk will host three speakers covering three different topics that we all love:

  • SRE methodologies

  • OpenObservability

  • OpenTelemetry

The Observable lightning talk is planned on the 20th of February between 12PM - 1:30PM EST ( 6PM-7:30PM CEST)

Here is the Agenda for the first edition :


The 3 presentations of the 5th edition are :

How to Find Bottlenecks in Your Agents

Braydon Kains

Braydon Kains, Software Developer at Google

After the initial learning curve of setting up an observability collector/agent, the next step is to make sure you are operating efficiently. In this talk, we will look through some example pipelines with bottlenecks that can be improved, and try some strategies for identifying and resolving the problems.

A Practical Guide to Building Automated Alert Investigation Pipelines Using LLMs

Natan Yellin

Natan Yellin, CEO at Robusta.dev

While there is a lot of hype around using LLMs to troubleshoot production issues, there are some serious challenges to obtaining consistent, high-quality, and accurate results. In 15 minutes, we'll outline the main use-cases for such solutions and how you can build them yourselves with standard tooling like OpenAI. You'll get a brief taste for what these solutions can accomplish and the different approaches to building them under the hood.

What’s New in OpenTelemetry

Dotan Horovits

Dotan Horovits,Technology Evangelist at Logz.io

OpenTelemetry is the most active CNCF project after Kubernetes. The project is progressing at an immense pace on many fronts. The project is growing in scope, adoption and recognition, such as expanding beyond the “three pillars” into new signals, and beyond backend into client side telemetry and real user monitoring. It can be difficult to keep track of all these updates.
In this lightning talk Horovits will give a status update on the project and will go over some of the notable project directions you should keep an eye on.
