Adopting Observability in Development and Testing

June 11, 2024

Observability has typically been associated with site reliability engineering (SRE) to help IT maintain reliability and uptime and to more quickly get to the root cause of IT issues and prevent outages. But observability also has a role to play in software development and in testing.

In this episode of DevOps Unbound, we’ll explore the growing trend of developers and test engineers integrating observability tools into the software development life cycle (SDLC). Adopting observability, typically considered the purview of operations and security, helps developers design more operable software and testers enhance efficiency and accuracy. We’ll delve into practical strategies and examples demonstrating how observability tools can identify issues and streamline bug diagnosis, leading to more robust, operable and reliable software solutions.

In this episode of DevOps Unbound, you learn from our panel of observability experts about:

  • The significant benefits observability brings to developers and testers.
  • Observability-driven design
  • Observability as a development tool
  • Observability’s impact on problem and bug investigation
  • How observability can benefit software operability
