PyCon Balkan 2019 Talks
TLK PyCon Talk
Hiring a Personal Investigator for your app
It has been a busy several years in monitoring and observability. Logging solutions are widely deployed, from scp+grep to proper federated logging. Collecting centralised server environment and resources metrics has also matured significantly. In this talk we'll introduce the next layer in this onion - in-depth Application Performance Monitoring (APM). While other parts of the monitoring stack could be described as watchpeople, APM plays much more of a detective role, bringing ever more metrics into increasingly complex UIs to suss out performance bottlenecks.
We'll talk a bit about the history of APM and show an example app being monitored with a free APM system (made by Elastic). We'll reflect on a case study of 2 of the speaker's old clients, 2 small web technology-driven organisations which could have gotten more out of their APM systems. We will look at why that might be and how you could do better. We will then walk through a simple vendor-agnostic approach to choosing an APM solution.

Intro to integrating search into your Django app
For anyone building something that needs search, the presenter will be available at the conf outside of this session for 1:1 discussions on what you're trying to do with search & discovery, how it might help or what excites you about the possibilities it opens up.
