    Topic 1 - You created Prometheus a couple years ago at SoundCloud. What were the core challenges you were trying to solve?

    Topic 2 - For people new to Prometheus, what does it do (at a basic level) in terms of monitoring containers and applications?
  • What can it monitor?
  • What can it trigger other systems to do? 
  • Topic 3 - Prometheus is now part of CNCF. Is it a native Kubernetes service, or a sidecar application for containers, or a broad service that just runs on Kubernetes?

    Topic 4 - What are the basic things that most people use Prometheus to monitor for?  What are a few complex use-cases?  (application types, application frameworks, usage-patterns, etc.)
