Debugging the Internet of Things with Traces

Presented by: Kirk Kaiser
Time: Thursday, Jan. 10, 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

Building IoT products is hard. There’s spotty internet connectivity, limited physical access to devices, and the added complexity of software across cloud and edge devices. In this talk, we’ll explore distributed tracing, a new tool for debugging complex systems. We’ll see how distributed tracing can be especially useful for debugging the complex environments found while building IoT products. We’ll show how distributed tracing lets us view our real traffic, in production, and quickly diagnose errors at any point in the request flow, whether it’s in the cloud or on our edge devices. You’ll come away with an understanding of how to incorporate traces into your software, and how tracing radically simplifies the process of debugging applications across connected devices.
