OpenTelemetry for Logging

While OpenTelemetry tracing is the de-facto standard today and metrics are also getting more and more established, logging is still lagging far behind.
This talk gives an overview of:

– Why should you change your logging to work with OpenTelemetry?
– Where is the OTel standard in terms of logging?
– How can you use it in your application today?

We will focus on Java with three different approaches for the implementation. But most of the concepts will translate well to other ecosystems as well.
