SHOW NOTES:

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell about your background prior to joining Grafana Labs. (worked with Julius Volz at Soundcloud, guest on The Cloudcast on Eps.263 and Eps.319). 

Topic 2 - I saw a tweet the other day that said, “CIO directive to cut contracts because they have 37 monitoring tools and still the reliability is poor...". Your talk at VelocityConf is about the hype around observability and monitoring. What is the state of Ops visibility? 

Topic 3 - Let’s start by talking about good hygiene and good practices. What types of things should Ops teams, SREs and even Developers always been doing to have good visibility of their environments?

Topic 4 - What are the big mistakes that companies make, or what anti-patterns are becoming more pervasive? 

Topic 5 - As a builder of tools, and an operator of tools, what are some of the things you wish more Dev knew, but maybe don’t know what to ask?

FEEDBACK?
