Day 4 Workshop: Getting familiar with the OpenTelemetry Collector

When: 2022-05-12 16:00:00 +0000 (your local date/time)

The workshop focuses on:

  • Configuring the Collector to receive and export different formats of data
  • Manipulating telemetry through Collector processors
  • Extending the Collector through custom builds and components
  • Deployment scenarios for the Collector


This will be intended as an intro level workshop, no experience with OpenTelemetry required. The only prerequisite for running the example code is a tool capable of running Docker containers ideally with Docker Compose and Go 1.16+ should be installed to compile the collector.
