Epsagon developers use OpenTelemetry excessively to create a sustainable observability product. But it wasn’t always like this. This talk will share the story of Epsagon adopting OpenTelemetry into its systems, the mistakes that were made in the process, how it became a part of the OpenTelemetry community, and how it all came together with Epsagon being acquired by Cisco.

This talk will cover:

  • Recent history of observability with an emphasis on OpenTelemetry
  • The different paths to use open source projects in general, and OpenTelemetry in particular, to create valuable products for your customers.
  • How to become a part of OpenTelemetry
  • Pitfalls to avoid when using OpenTelemetry (and open source in general)
