About our Theme: Observability

Increasing complexity of software and infrastructure, the merging of development and operations, and the requirement of teams to have better insight into what's going on "under the hood" have fueled the demand for greater visibility into the performance and reliability of systems. Observability, as a premise and practice, has emerged to help bridge the gap between effective monitoring and relevant insight. Code Freeze 2020 will promote "20/20" vision into software systems. We will explore externalization of states in the context of software systems, technical debt, data, devops, machine learning and more. We will examine observability as a property and a practice and explore its adoption from a cultural and a process perspective.
