Thank you for picking up our book on observability engineering for modern software systems. Our goal is to help you understand how to develop a practice of observability within your engineering organization. This book is based on our experience as practitioners of observability, and as makers of observability tooling for users who want to improve their own observability practices.
As outspoken advocates for driving observability practices in software engineering, our hope is that this book can set a clear record of what observability means in the context of modern software systems. The term “observability” has seen quite a bit of recent uptake in the software development ecosystem. This book aims to help you separate facts from hype by providing a deep analysis of:
- What observability means in the context of software delivery and operations
- How to build the fundamental components that help you achieve observability
- The impact observability has on team dynamics
- Considerations for observability at scale
- Practical ways to build a culture of observability in your organization
Who this is for
Because observability predominantly focuses on achieving a better understanding of how software operates in the real world, this book is most useful for software engineers responsible for developing production applications. Anyone who supports the operation of software in production will also greatly benefit from the content in this book.
Additionally, managers of software delivery and operations teams who are interested in understanding how the practice of observability can benefit their organization will find value in this book, particularly in the chapters that focus on team dynamics, culture, and scale.
Anyone who helps teams deliver and operate production software and is curious about this new thing called “observability” and why people are talking about it should also find this book useful.
