John Muellerleile: An Adventure in Distributed Systems, Genetic Algorithms & Art

In this talk, I'll walk you through the three facets of my adventure: my artistic process and its deconstruction, how I applied genetic algorithms to serve as a substrate for creativity, and the underlying systems that made it possible. Along the way, I'll also share a bunch of interesting implementation details, entertaining corner cases and bugs, some higher level thoughts -- and, perhaps more importantly, questions -- about making art in this way, and, of course, some art!

April showers bring Humio around the world!

A key part of observability is being seen - and that’s true whether it’s your logs or your team! From Security to Development to DevOps, the Humio team will be on the road in April. Will you also be at one of these events? Make sure to watch the talks from the Humio team and come say hi and get a demo at our booth! We’ll have super awesome Humio giveaways :)


Studying the Logs - Humio gets an A+ from Lix

For new businesses and platforms that are constantly monitoring, analyzing, and organizing their logging data, keeping on top of those logs can be a frightful proposition, downright monstrous even. For Lix, the study platform aimed at students pursuing higher education, it was imperative that the company be able to keep track of user demands.


Delete Events and the Act of Forgetting

Logs are meant to record the running history of your system - the application and infrastructure of what you are trying to deliver. Humio enables this observability by combining information from the past and what is happening now. In the modern world, we want to retain as much information as possible, but just as important as remembering, is the act of forgetting.

Alex Tasioulis: Observability for Microservices - Practical Advice @ QCon London 2019

The simple goal of observability is to make systems better. Gaining insights into the behavior of systems is critical to improve their overall health and resiliency and this is imperative for distributed systems, especially those with more cloud native architectures like microservices. But observing these complex software architectures can be a real pain.
