Observability Fundamentals

Given the lack of observability training in official curriculums, many of us learned what we know from whatever ecosystem we were first introduced to and whatever observability solutions were implemented at our employers throughout our career. This method of piecing together information coupled with the breadth of types of telemetry, opinionated platforms, and data formats available today can make it challenging to wrap our heads around the concept of observability.

Honeycomb hopes we can help with that by sharing the observability fundamentals that we think we should all know.
