Datadog 101: Developer

Kari Halsted / Alex Rosenkranz
Skill level
Additional Requirements

Application developers get enormous value out of Datadog, but in significantly different ways than DevOps engineers or SREs.

You’ll begin this workshop by installing the Datadog Agent in a containerized web application. You’ll then create Synthetic Tests to monitor critical frontend services with simulated customer interactions. And as the name implies, Real User Monitoring (RUM) will help you measure and improve the quality of your users’ experience.

Along the way you will see how Datadog’s core tools such as Logs, APM, Dashboards, Monitors, and Alerts can help you stay ahead of application issues before they cause problems for your users.
