Arijit Mukherji: Strategies for Docker & Kubernetes Monitoring

Monitoring microservices environments is hard. Monitoring containerized microservices environments is harder. This talk discusses how to holistically think about monitoring Docker and Kubernetes environments, what makes it hard (scale, churn, complexity) in spite of numerous OSS tools available, strategies and technologies (like service mesh) that can help address those challenges.

Alex Hidalgo: Implementing SLOs for Service Reliability

SLOs are all the rage, but for many people they end up being more talk than action. Let's discuss how to actually implement these concepts for your service and how you can use error budgets to help drive your decisions.
