About the Event

This will be a full evening about OpenTracing. OpenTracing turns the light on for microservices (https://www.cncf.io/blog/2016/10/20/opentracing-turning-the-lights-on-for-microservices/). It is a specification to store and manage trace. How can we follow what’s going on from the beginning to the end of our requests? What’s happening when they cross different services? Where is the bottleneck? Tracing helps you to understand what’s going on. It’s not just for microservices but also for caching, queue system an so on. Have a look at the trends https://trends.google.it/trends/explore?q=opentracing you need to know!

The event will be in Turin, we are still waiting for the final destination, but it’s coming soon!

19.45 - 20.30 Trace your micro-services oriented application with Zipkin and OpenTracing

A practical approach to OpenTracing in a PHPmicroservices application. In this talk, we will focus on Zipkin and OpenTracing. An example of integration in an online application clarifies our needs of tracing and measuring things in our softwares, simply because measure is the key to science.
