Modern applications consist of a wide array of frontend applications, backend services, and dependencies deployed across hosts, containers, and serverless infrastructures. Without end-to-end observability into an environment, triaging an issue becomes a slow and arduous process.

In this workshop, you will instrument an application with Datadog APM. Then, by making use of Distributed Tracing, identify issues with the application. With the information you have gathered, you will improve the user experience. With the application functioning as expected, you will put measures in place to make sure you are alerted if latency increases above a threshold.
