Learning to Learn by Teaching DevOps | Kat Cosgrove on 99 Percent Visible

Apr 29, 2021

I'm a Developer Advocate. That means that ultimately, my job is to teach people things. Over the last year and some change, I've given dozens of talks and workshops about DevOps, the majority of them educational in nature. The way I approach developer education has changed pretty radically over that period of time – more difficult for me in some ways, but better for my audience in every way. The assumptions I make are different now, and the way I communicate has changed, too.

They say you don't truly understand something until you can teach it to someone else, so in the spirit of that, let me teach you what I've learned in my time teaching developers. Everyone learns differently, but everyone also has something they can teach you.

Lightstep's observability platform is the easiest way for developers and SREs to monitor health and respond to changes in cloud-native applications. Powered by cutting-edge distributed tracing and a groundbreaking metrics database, and built by the team that launched observability at Google, Lightstep's Change Intelligence provides actionable insights to help teams answer the question "What caused that change?"
