Currently providing technical evangelism for NGINX, Dave works with DevOps, developers, and architects to understand the advantages of modern microservice architectures and orchestration to solve large-scale distributed systems challenges, especially with open source and its innovation. Dave has been a champion for open systems and open source from the early days of Linux, through open distributed file systems like XFS, GFS, and GlusterFS to today’s world of clouds and containers. He often speaks on topics such as the real-world issues associated with emerging software architectures and practices, open-source software, and creating new technology companies.
Dave will be speaking on the What’s and Why’s of Distributed Tracing. Tracing can be very powerful. It gives the ability to connect the customer experience to the backend services several hops away.
Join us March 14-15 to discover the driving forces for tracing, dive into the why (and what) you would want to trace, and delve into the OpenTelemetry specs and architecture.
