Distributed Tracing and Monitoring with OpenCensus

OpenCensus is an emerging standard for tracing and metrics of cloud services. You can use it to gain observability into applications that span multiple clouds and technological stacks.

In this talk, we will use open source and vendor agnostic client libraries for OpenCensus and export telemetry to common distributed tracing systems such as Zipkin and others.
Along the way. we will discuss core concepts such as tags, metrics, exporters, zPages and trace context propagation.
