At Grafana Labs, we are working to make it easier to visualize data that comes from many different sources and in many different ways. We know that our customers are usually using more than one system to track what’s going on within an infrastructure. If you are a system administrator, or even a curious developer, there is a very high probability that you are monitoring and quite regularly reviewing your logs to find valuable and important information in them.

I am a junior software engineer in Slovakia. I feel incredibly lucky that I’ve had this amazing opportunity to join Grafana Labs, as it was among the top companies that I’ve ever dreamed about working for.

This talk covers experience and thoughts about how to approach the monitoring and management of cloud-native systems. It will draw both from observations of the opportunities provided by systems like Kubernetes as well as from practical hands-on experience from building real monitoring systems. With luck it will provide both experiences from the past, and inspirations for the future.
