The ongoing series covering my journey into the world of cloud-native observability continues in this article, where I’m continuing to explore an open-source dashboard and visualization project. If you missed any of the previous articles, head on back to the introduction for a quick update.
After laying out the groundwork for this series in the initial article, I spent some time in the second article sharing who the observability players are. I also discussed the teams that these players are on in this world of cloud-native o11y. For the third article, I looked at the ongoing discussion around monitoring pillars versus phases. In the fourth article, I talked about keeping your options open with open-source standards. In the fifth article in this series, I talked about bringing monolithic applications into the cloud-native o11y world. In my sixth article, I provided you with an introduction to a new open-source dashboard and visualization project and shared how to install the project on your local developer machine. In the seventh article, I explored the API and tooling provided by the Perses project. Then I spent time in the next article covering the open dashboard specification that you need to follow to start creating your first dashboard. Finally, in the previous article, you built your very first dashboard.
