#199: You’re probably used to hearing about using OpenTelemetry for your production troubleshooting. But have you considered using OpenTelemetry during your development lifecycle?

In this episode, we speak with Ran Nozik, CTO and co-founder of Helios, about the current state of OpenTelemetry and how using OpenTelemetry may save us a lot of time troubleshooting issues in production if we first start using while we are developing our applications.
