What to expect: ObservabilityCON 2022 agenda highlights

This year, ObservabilityCON will include an afternoon of workshops followed by a full day of in-person technical presentations, hands-on demos, and expert advice. 

On Nov. 1, there will be optional workshops during which you can sharpen your dashboarding skills and learn from the best in the open source observability community before the main event.

The official ObservabilityCON program will take place on Nov. 2, with a full-day agenda that’s packed with demos, technical deep dives, community success stories, and plenty of opportunities for you to get your observability questions answered at the Grafana Labs Ask the Experts booth. Here’s a preview of what’s in store:

  • ObservabilityCON keynote from Grafana Labs VP of Technology Tom Wilkie and team on the latest developments in open source observability.
  • Technical sessions from experts on topics such as taming rising metrics costs, performance testing with Grafana k6, and all the latest updates in Grafana, Grafana Loki, Grafana Tempo, and Grafana Mimir.
  • User success stories filled with valuable lessons that experts learned during their observability journeys.
  • Free technical advice from the maintainers of the Grafana LGTM stack (Loki-Grafana-Tempo-Mimir) at the Ask the Experts booth.
  • Interactive demos to test out new observability tools and see the latest innovations from Grafana Labs.

Throughout ObservabilityCON, you’ll hear from leaders in the industry on where open source observability is headed. Technical experts will share best practices and new approaches to attaining business goals. And you’ll connect (in person!) with the vibrant open source community. 

You’ll leave this year’s ObservabilityCON event ready to implement new strategies and inspired by community members who are winning in observability with Grafana Labs’ “big tent” approach, bringing together disparate data sources into one composable observability platform.
