If you’ve never used Checkly before, you’ll have the opportunity to learn why Checkly is a perfect solution—made for developers—to help you confidently ship and maintain reliable code. On October 27th (at 8:00am PT / 11:00am ET / 5:00pm CET) I’ll be hosting a free online workshop that will introduce you to synthetic monitoring and help you write your first Browser and API check using the Checkly platform. I will also be joined by Checkly Co-Founder and CTO Tim Nolet (@tim_nolet), who will provide opening remarks and answer questions during the workshop.

In this 60 minute workshop, you’ll also learn about how easy it is to create your own checks, alerts and dashboards, as well as getting an introduction to Checkly’s Monitoring-as-Code (MaC) approach to synthetic monitoring, which is a programmatic way to scale and maintain your monitoring setup. I’ll discuss how easy it is to integrate Checkly natively with your existing workflow and tools—including such popular platforms as Terraform, Pulumi, Playwright, and GitHub—and also where you can find some helpful monitoring resources.
Playwright, Critical User Flows, and MaC
I’ll also spend some time telling you a bit about Microsoft’s Playwright, an open-source browser automation tool that enables reliable end-to-end testing for modern web apps. I’ll demonstrate how you can use Playwright and Checkly to monitor your web app’s critical user flows, helping ensure that your websites are up and running when your customers need to access them.
I also plan to delve a bit deeper into the impact and importance of our MaC approach, which promises to make software monitoring even more useful and effective for developers. I recently penned an article for IT Ops Times (It’s time to embrace Monitoring-as-Code) that explains MaC in more detail; here’s a quick excerpt:
“The scenarios MaC opens up are highly desirable. For example, imagine being able to modify your application and, at the same time, the synthetic monitoring checks that will need to ensure that it is running as expected, all in one pull request to your usual repository. Your policies, processes and stack need no change in order to support that. All of a sudden, the world in which you’d have to configure checks by hand, one by one, seems terribly outdated.”
We’ll cover all of these topics—and maybe a bit more!—in our Checkly Kickstart Workshop, so I’ll hope you'll join me to learn about how Checkly can take your software monitoring approach to the next level.
