Show Me Your Code with Dan and Walter: How to contribute to OpenTelemetry JS
When: Thursday 16th 6-7pm GMT+2 (9am PDT)
OpenTelemetry for JS and how to contribute
OpenTelemetry is a specification and set of instrumentation libraries developed in open source from multiple companies such as Google, HoneyComb.io, Dynatrace, LightStep and many more!
OpenTracing and OpenCensus joined the force, and they started a common project called OpenTelemetry that I hope will become the way to go in terms of code instrumentation because I really think it is something we need.
He tried it out and he wrote its first opentelemetry instrumentation plugin mongoose, a popular library he uses and that it was not instrumented yet.
Dan will help us to figure how they designed the opentelemetry-js implementation as it is today, the good the bad and the ugly about this experience. I hope to get some feedback about roadmap and future development as well now that the library reached its first release beta.
When I was working on my observability workshop Dan gave me a huge help, drastically increasing my very low experience with NodeJS. Thank you for that.
