You get paged about a problem in production - but how do you know just what system or service is acting up? What do you do to identify and mitigate the impact on users before ultimately fixing any underlying issues? In this track, we'll look at state-of-the-art tools and processes for incident management, observability, and debugging high-impact production systems.

Deconstructing an Abstraction to Reconstruct an Outage
Tuesday Mar 28 / 10:35AM BST
Abstractions are what allow us to build the complex applications that we all use day-to-day. For example, it's rare for us to care about the precise details of on-disk storage when building an application — that's why databases exist!

Celebrity Vulnerabilities: Effective Response to Critical Production Threats
Tuesday Mar 28 / 11:50AM BST
Log4Shell, Spring4Shell, are you tired of being told to drop everything and respond to the next critical vulnerability in an open-source package? Chances are, if you work in the engineering team of any software development organization, the answer is yes.

As an industry, we’ve made big strides in working within complexity in microservices: we build in observability with OpenTelemetry standards. But what about client-side? This is the most inscrutable part of our system, because it runs on anyone’s computer.

Unconference: Debugging in Production
Tuesday Mar 28 / 02:55PM BST
What is an unconference? An unconference is a participant-driven meeting. Attendees come together, bringing their challenges and relying on the experience and know-how of their peers for solutions.

Your Java Application Is Slow? Check Out These Open-Source Profilers
Tuesday Mar 28 / 04:10PM BST
Profilers help to analyze performance bottlenecks of your application - if you know which to use and how to work with them. There are many open-source profilers, like async-profiler or JMC. This talk will give you insights into these tools, focusing on:

No Instrumentation Observability With eBPF - Are We There Yet?
Tuesday Mar 28 / 05:25PM BST
Gaining interest for the past few years, eBPF promises zero-instrumentation observability with low performance overhead. Sounds like a dream, but are we there already?
