#255: In an era where software development and operations are increasingly converging, the need for effective and efficient observability tools has never been more critical. As systems grow in complexity and the lines between development and operations blur, the role of observability in understanding and managing these systems becomes more prominent. One significant problem is the dichotomy developers face: either being completely isolated from production observability data or overwhelmed by the volume of information available, most of which may not be directly relevant to their specific tasks. In this episode, we talk with Liran Haimovitch from Rookout about developer observability. This concept prioritizes making observability tools and data accessible and understandable for developers, allowing them to gain insights into how their code operates in production environments. This shift is not about discarding the importance of operations in observability but rather enhancing the collective capability of teams to monitor, diagnose, and resolve issues more effectively.   Liran's contact information: X (Formerly Twitter): https://twitter.com/liran_last LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/liran-haimovitch/   YouTube channel: https://youtube.com/devopsparadox   Review the podcast on Apple Podcasts: https://www.devopsparadox.com/review-podcast/   Slack: https://www.devopsparadox.com/slack/   Connect with us at: https://www.devopsparadox.com/contact/
#254: When you first started out working with infrastructure, you probably used point and click to get your work done. Over time, you created scripts to replace some of that point and click work. But then, many infrastructure as code tools exploded on the market. You may have started working with one or two or you may have chosen to just keep doing what you were doing, but you soon realized you were falling way behind what was going on in the industry. In this episode, Darin and Viktor discuss many of the ups and downs of using infrastructure as code and why not every infrastructure as code tool may be the right tool for you.   YouTube channel: https://youtube.com/devopsparadox   Review the podcast on Apple Podcasts: https://www.devopsparadox.com/review-podcast/   Slack: https://www.devopsparadox.com/slack/   Connect with us at: https://www.devopsparadox.com/contact/
