It’s 2:00am. Is your application working properly? How will you know for sure when you wake up tomorrow morning? In this talk we’ll look at strategies for effective logging, monitoring and metrics collection from within your application. We’ll look at what kind of data you should and shouldn’t log, and with what frequency, as well as some great open-source tools to use. We’ll also take some first steps with Statsd and Graphite to help see trends in performance, user behavior, and overall application health. We’ll also learn some useful ways to interpret the data we collect to get the best picture of what’s really going on when you’re not looking.

Very good presentation, speaker is excellent, topic was really useful. And I still laugh when remember that slide with search on GitHub showing 18M of result for empty catch block :D
Well done

Most of the things speaker was talking about were known to me, but still got some good logging tips and tricks. Well presented talk. It would be great if Josh showed some slides and examples using NewRelic.
