This is an extremely limited capacity, hands-on workshop specifically on How to Send Data to Honeycomb via the OpenTelemetry Collector. We’ll teach you how to:
- Configure and send different types of data to Honeycomb
- Use Opentelemetry processors
- Optimize and troubleshoot
The OpenTelemetry Collector offers a vendor-agnostic way to gather observability data from a variety of instrumentation solutions and send that data to Honeycomb. Applications instrumented with OpenTelemetry SDKs or with Jaeger, Zipkin, or OpenCensus can use the OpenTelemetry Collector to send trace data to Honeycomb as events.
Additionally, applications instrumented with OpenTelemetry SDKs or with metrics data from Prometheus, StatsD, Influx, and others can use the OpenTelemetry Collector to send metrics data to Honeycomb. You can configure data your way before sending it to Honeycomb.
Access to GitHub and a Honeycomb Free Account. This workshop requires basic programming knowledge. Attendees should have prior experience delivering and/or operating production software. Additionally, you must be able to join a Zoom meeting and know how to navigate the Honeycomb UI.
