Prometheus, the second most popular project at the CNCF, has a large and growing ecosystem. If you're a developer looking to get some quick graphs from your application, it's not always clear where to start. At first, it can seem like a daunting task, but by following some simple examples, you can get up and running in no time. In this webinar, Brian Brazil, author of “Prometheus Up and Running” and long time developer of Prometheus will walk you through the basic steps to get started instrumenting applications with Prometheus.

You will learn:
