Continuous Feedback is a new dev practice, that addresses a gap in the dev to prod cycle. While a considerable amount of data is collected about the application and its behavior it prod, very little of that is effectively put to use when we write code

By using OpenTelemetry, as well as open-source tools and platforms, developers can leverage metrics and traces to challenge code assumptions and develop for real-world requirements in an evidence-based manner, extending code ownership all the way to production and beyond. Observability, after all, can be about more than pretty dashboards.

This talk is relevant to any Developer or DevOps practitioner seeking to understand how to use current observability technologies effectively in a way that can make an impact on the dev process and improve code quality. We'll explore practical techniques, tools, and practices that can be combined to create a Continuous Feedback pipeline.
