As LogDNA’s Developer Advocate, Laura Santamaria loves to learn and explain how things work. She bridges the gap between external developers and SREs and internal engineering teams. Prior to LogDNA, Laura worked as a software developer at Rackspace where, among other things, she owned Deconst, an open-source documentation delivery platform, and MC’ed Rackspace’s internal technical conference. Apart from work, she helps host tech Meetups, taught Python for Women Who Code Austin for many years, and volunteers with DevOpsDays Austin. Outside of tech, Laura runs, plays with her dogs, throws discs, and watches clouds—the real kind.
Logging isn’t just about gathering data; it’s about enhancing our natural abilities to understand the chaos around us. Logging is about following the flow of data across many surfaces, through many datacenters, and out of many devices and then generating a map of common errors and patterns so you can find your way quickly as the current gets stronger. In short, logging is about what people need to navigate our modern lives.
Let’s explore the future of logging, see what the flow of data looks like now versus in the past and how that might change into the future, and discuss how data and security are intertwined.
