Now that you’ve established your baseline observability, what’s next? In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn a variety of techniques for composing an executive dashboard that displays a mix of preset and custom widgets. This dashboard will include custom revenue metrics from logs and a UX SLO from a synthetic browser test.

 You will then create a special-purpose notebook for troubleshooting business-critical UX issues. This runbook will use graphs, text, and links to guide colleagues through investigating, diagnosing, and resolving application issues. 

Along the way, you’ll learn techniques and shortcuts that will increase your productivity in everyday Datadog tasks.
