## OpenTelemetry - Alban
OpenTelemetry is a collection of APIs and libraries as well as a collection mechanism via an agent and collector. These components are used to generate, collect, and describe telemetry about distributed systems.
The OpenTelemetry project comes from OpenCensus and OpenTracing merging together this summer. OpenTracing and OpenCensus plan to shutdown in November when OpenTelemetry is ready to be used in main languages (Java, Golang, Python, NodeJS, C#).
This talk is about my exploration of distributed tracing in Python.
I'll first introduce some concepts of distributed tracing, namely traces and spans, and how they can be correlated in a distributed system with trace context propagation formats in HTTP (B3 Propagation or W3C Trace Context).
Then, I'll present some Python libraries: opentracing-python (currently stable) and opentelemetry-python (currently in development).
I will show a demo based on Yuri Shkuro's Python opentracing-tutorial.
## What's coming in Python 3.8
Are you following all the discussion on the official Python mailing lists?
Do you spend a couple of hours reading the new PEP proposals, and more on the ones that are recently accepted?
If the answer is no, lay back and enjoy this presentation on all the amazing features that are coming with Python 3.8.
The talk will be based on the included features on the latest 3.8 snapshot: https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-380b3/
## Lightning Talks
Do you have a little project that require new collaborators?
Are you organizing or know an event that you want to advertise?
Did you discover something and want to share it with everyone?
Share it with us!
A lightning talk is a presentation shorter than 10 minutes.
Keep it brief and concise with your material.
At about 8:45 pm we'll move to a nearby Thai restaurant.
