6:40pm – A Journey From Common Logs to Structured Events! by Ben Hartshorne, Honeycomb:
Let’s take a walk through the evolution of logging! We’ll start back in the old times when people thought the pinnacle of debuggability was to put `printf(“got here”)` into their code, and gradually change a running application to emit better and better logs. We’ll end with complete events, written as JSON structured logs.
Come along for story time, it’ll be fun.
7:10pm – Testing in Production: Yes You Can (And You Should) by Charity Majors, Honeycomb:
Like it or not, you already test in production.
It’s impossible to make staging an exact mirror of production. Spending obsessive energy trying to do it does not make it less impossible.
Like it or not, you already test in production… but you probably haven’t invested enough in tooling, so you think you should have tested more in staging. Let’s talk about what to test with CI, and how to channel your energy on profitable improvements to your prod-testing pipeline. Instead of falling back, let’s talk about how to own testing in production.
