Speaking at Golab Conf this year!

This year, I’m going to be presenting at Golab Conf about Advanced Dependency Management in Go using Fx. I’m also hosting a workshop on integrating your Go service \w the ELK stack.

In the talk, we’ll cover what the Fx framework is and how it can help you reduce some of the component wiring boilerplate as well as help you structure your applications into reusable modules, which is especially great in a microservice environment!

As for the workshop, it’s a VERY hands-on 3-hour workshop in which you’ll learn how to use the Elastic stack to greatly enhance your services’ observability. If you have no idea what all that means, then this workshop is definitely for you. It will give you the knowledge to evaluate if these tools are right for you and the skills to fully integrate this into your systems & start using it right away.

If any of that sounds interesting to you, then book your seat!

Otherwise, check out the full agenda here as there are also other pretty cool talks & some quite interesting workshops!

The conference is hosted online throughout 19th October to 25th October from the comfort of your own seat at home.

The “Advanced Dependency Management in Go using Fx” talk is held on 16th October, 17:30 PM GMT +2.

The “Integrating your Go service with the ELK stack” workshop is held on 21st October, 12:30 PM GMT+2.

I’ll see you there!

Using Kibana to Debug Production Issues


This article is part of the series Integrating your Go service with ELK

In the last chapter of these series, we covered how to create your first Kibana dashboard for a sample web application.

Although that will help you setup Kibana for your production services, what you’ll be doing 99% of the time would be to actually use the dashboard to monitor & debug issues you observe on production.

This is the final post in the series for monitoring Go applications \w Kibana. It will give you some practice using your newly created dashboard to identify problems with a sample web application.

So if you’ve setup Kibana for the first time or you’ve just joined your new team & seen your Kibana dashboards without a clue what’s going on, this post is for you!

How to create a Logging Dashboard with Kibana


This article is part of the series Integrating your Go service with ELK

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create a dashboard for your application’s structured logs in Kibana.

This is a follow-up to this article, which covers how to instrument your Go application \w structured logging for use by Kibana (in this tutorial).

We’ll use Kibana v7.6 but any version you’re using should work. It’s just that your UI might look a bit different & you’ll have to adjust.

Let’s jump straight in! We’ll stick to simple panels, which suite most of the use-cases you’d need.
