End-user Resources

Vendor-agnostic resources for users of OpenTelemetry

The OpenTelemetry End User Working Group has heard feedback from users who desire a vendor-agnostic space to discuss adopting OpenTelemetry, so we provide multiple ways for you to connect with other users of the project and share best practices:

These forums will bring together operations and development engineers from different organizations to discuss challenges and solutions to achieving ubiquitous observability. Share successes and failures, discover best practices, and meet others who are also on a journey to implement observability powered by OpenTelemetry.


This group is what its members make it – whatever is of interest to the group is fair game!

But here are some of the kinds of things we expect will be on the table:

  • Refactoring with telemetry
  • What is company X doing with OpenTelemetry?
  • Correlating multiple observability signals
  • Maintaining and scaling OpenTelemetry deployments
  • Writing custom instrumentation


Is this group only for OpenTelemetry end users?

No! Anyone is welcome to join and discuss their journey to observability. This group is hosted by the OpenTelemetry Community End-User Working Group, so we expect most participants will be from organizations that are evaluating or using OpenTelemetry.

I have questions about this, who can I reach out to?

You can find members of the End User Working Group in #otel-user-research.
