It's a warm Friday and most of us are sheltering in place, so it's time for five hot takes on this week's monitoring and observability news 1/6

Leading off, an analysis on the Gartner 2020 APM Magic Quadrant. There's not much that's magical about APM (or Gartner reports for that matter), but this report is worth a read… 2/6
The Open Observability conference is May 27th. There's about half a dozen speakers already, and the CFP is open until May 11th 3/6
.@grafana 7.0 release is around the corner. It looks like there are some MetricTank rollup improvements, which should make some Cassandra cluster operators happy.… 4/6
.@TimescaleDB published a post on Grafana 101 alerting. Looks like it covers some basics - average CPU, memory, disk alerting.… 5/6
Saving the best for last, @postwait shipped a PR to @grafana to add linear time series buckets. If you've never loaded 100s of millions of datapoints in a few seconds, you obviously haven't tried @IRONdb. Yes, it's that fast.… 6/6

A lot of you folks have seen the @CloudNativeFdn recent End User Technology Radar that was recently published -…

It has generated some discussion, but folks I know say takeaways aren't obvious. I've done Observability (TM) for 10 years, here are mine. 1/9
CNCF published a methodology on how they did this, but they basically asked different companies to classify the observability (and monitoring!) technologies they are using into Adopt, Trial, Assess.

Now here's the interesting part: 2/9
Those are current tense verbs and read more like recommendations, when they really shouldn't be. This was a radar, not a prescription (I'm here to give you the prescription ;) It would have been better if they used "Adopted", "Trialed", "Assessed" to be more precise. 3/9

Reading on Twitter that a lot of DevRel folks are concerned about conference cancellations. I was in that role previously for a highly technical product. Speaking and talking to folks at the booth is only part of the game. 1/
If the conf was highly aligned with your product niche, this can be a concern for your outreach efforts. But it also represents an opportunity. Attendees already know they want to see your talk and have probably followed you on Twitter. 2/
So give it starting in blog form. Not all at once though, make it like a TV show that has cliffhangers. You already have the narrative, you just need to create episodes with subplots. People will read it, trust me (folks at confs said they read my posts) 3/
