Over the course of a week, we’ll give you the tools to explore all the possibilities of using pipelines, coupled with some examples to get your creativity if you haven’t used one before. Then we’ll end with an in-person event where the finalists will discuss their approach and judges will declare a winner! Prizes will be awarded!
There is one twist to this hackathon, however. Observability pipelines are often fairly simple in their design: grab telemetry, process data, and send downstream. Instead, the winners of this hackathon will be the ones who build the most overly complicated and convoluted pipelines. And if you’re a finalist, be ready to defend just how necessary all those extra steps are to the judges!
Who is Edge Delta:
Edge Delta is an automated observability platform that monitors your services, alerts you when something is wrong, and guides root-cause analysis. The platform is built for DevOps, SRE, and developers to simplify log management, streamline troubleshooting processes, and route data to other observability platforms.
Quick Start Guides - Coming soon!
What to build:
For your hackathon entry:
Display “Hello World” from one or multiple data sources, in a different downstream system, using as complicated an Observability Pipeline as possible
Use at least one Edge Delta agent and pipeline in building the solution
Have at least one data source feeding data into the pipeline
Have at least one downstream system (whether Edge Delta’s UI or another tool) to display “Hello World”
Have fun pushing the possibilities of the technology!
Join the Slack channel (coming soon!) to run your ideas by other hackers, ask questions or to get help from the team.
What to submit:
Submit an email (that was used in Edge Delta) with the following:
The agent_tags of the pipelines used in the final solution
A sentence or two describing the approach to the problem
A screenshot of Hello World in the final destination
