End-user resources

Vendor-agnostic resources for OpenTelemetry users

Looking to connect with other OpenTelemetry end users in a vendor-agnostic space, or to learn more about OpenTelemetry? Perhaps you have some feedback about your implementation or adoption that you’d like to share with project contributors, or you want to help prioritize project issues. You’ve come to the right place!

These forums aim to bring together operations and development engineers from different organizations to discuss challenges and solutions to achieving ubiquitous observability. We encourage you to share your 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?

Everybody is welcome to join and discuss their journey to observability. This group is hosted by the OpenTelemetry Community End-User SIG, 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 OpenTelemetry End User SIG in #otel-sig-end-user.
