Workshop: Zero to OTel Hero
We all know that OpenTelemetry has quickly become one of the preferred data collection and instrumentation for APM, infrastructure metrics and more. However, re-instrumenting your applications can be a challenge, and knowing where to start is not always straightforward. In this session, Splunk's observability solutions engineers will cover: 1) Basics of what OpenTelemetry is, 2) Hands-on examples of how to instrument your applications and validate using APM and 3) How to use your existing CICD processes to ensure a smooth transition from your current telemetry tooling to Otel. Bring your laptop and get ready to learn something awesome!
Pre-Requisites: For a smooth workshop experience, please install Multipass: multipass.run/install ahead of time. Multipass will be used as we get a Java app instrumented with Open Telementry.
