Helping Go teams implement OpenTelemetry: A new approach
Developers can instrument their Go applications quickly and easily using Helios OpenTelemetry (OTel), the emerging industry standard for application observability and distributed tracing across cloud-native and distributed architectures, is becoming an essential tool for Go developers. However, implementing OTel with Go to send data to observability platforms is hardly a straightforward process. At Helios, we’re […]
Trace-based Testing: Modern Testing for the Modern Infrastructure
Traditional software application infrastructure generally followed a monolithic pattern; one application connected to one database. Understanding what was going on inside the application itself was a simple proposition, with relevant logs and metrics all originating from the same source. When it came time to scale, the answer was to get a bigger server or to […]
A better developer experience: Applying observability to 3rd-party integrations
