Bartek will be speaking at Sphere.it conf 2022 on the topic:

Clouds are not Free: Guide to Observability-Driven Efficiency Optimizations

Over the recent decade, cloud computing and cloud-native platforms emerged and promised lower costs, less effort and more flexibility. Unfortunately, in practice, it is not so easy. Knowledge short gaps, pitfalls, the complexity of using cloud APIs, and misunderstanding of services and systems cause companies to lose millions of dollars every year. On top of that, the big data world demands more and more software and computing power every day.

Fortunately, there is a method to that madness! No matter if you build your own software, or use open source or paid systems, there are many efficiency gains that will save tons of money! Sometimes it’s a code optimization, sometimes algorithm adjustment, sometimes system-level operation!

In this talk Bartek, an open-source maintainer of observability projects like Prometheus and Thanos, author of “Efficient Go” book and the CNCF TAG Observability Tech Lead, will explain how to notice and uncover efficiency problems effectively thanks to the power of modern cloud-native observability and tooling. The audience will learn pragmatic practices they can do to ensure effective and sustainable optimizations and how to avoid regressions in future. All to increase the business operational margin and enable more opportunities with more efficient software and systems.
