Description​​​


Splunk is a magical tool - it sucks in your logs, indexes them and gives you a rich search and data mining application to drill deep into them. But as a developer why the heck would you want to use such a DevOps'y tool? In this session, I show how using Splunk whilst developing can give insight into your code - how to time transactions, graph volumes and analyse performance - and how Splunking as a developer will make life in production that much easier. Disclaimer - I just use this tool - I'm in no way associated with Splunk Inc. YMMV
