Speaker pitch
I will speak about the need of becoming more comfortable with failure, especially when working with the complexity that comes with distributed systems. In my experience, a critical part of building applications is acknowledging that we cannot possibly prepare for everything... but there are ways to be ready for it.
My talk will go through how we can build system with observability in mind (using metrics, high-cardinality logging, distributed tracing...) in order to have the right tools to understand how our applications really behave.

Why did we choose it ?
Because we have talk a lot about testing and pipelines during last flowcon conferences and we believe we have to go further by understanding how a system works in the real life aka LIVE. In this talk, you will mainly understand what observability is. If you want to understand what might be your first steps regarding observability, Abby's session is a good add on.
