Welcome to the weird notes of a new DevOps and Backend engineer. This is my (quite open) notebook on what was all the stuff I read and learnt. Not necessarily tech, you can just read on and understand what I am rambling on about.

[19 June 2021]

Stuff I learnt 📝

  • So, the current opentelemetry sentry-exporter is indeed incomplete right now. I investigated the elastic APM exporter and realised that Sentry one is just not using it's full capabilities yet. You need to run span.Events() to get a list of events which can be further converted into *sentry.Event. Sentry Error
  • Also, in the prometheus-operator helm chart, we figured out how to add additional rules without having to "upgrade the chart" without putting in new values in values.yaml. Just create a new PrometheusRule object as a rule file and the ConfigMaps will auto grab it.
  • PS: I am talking about this operator here : kube-prometheus

Stuff I need to check out tomorrow? 📅

  • How do i link a sentry span and a sentry issue.
  • Talk with team and refine the requirements because hell no, Sentry is not a logging platform (or I am an idiot)
  • Get vaccinated ffs 😢

Stuff I want to work some day in future. 🔭

  • IF I manage to pull this issue linking stuff off, I think I will contribute this to opentelemetry collector exporter. My first cloud native contribution might be on its way idk man.

Thanks for listening to the rant.
