🎥 A Practical Guide to Building Python Based Extensions with Dynatrace

Community Team
Community Team



The Dynatrace Extensions SDK for Python is a new Python library and toolbox for building Python extensions for Extensions Framework 2.0. It provides a ready-to-use template and a set of tools to build, test, package, and ship your extension.

Watch this hands-on tutorial where Andreas Grabner, @andreas_grabner , DevRel Dynatrace, together with David Lopes, @david_lopes , Extension Architect at Dynatrace, walk us through everything there is to know about creating your own Python Extensions using either the Visual Studio Code Extension or the SDK Command Line Tool. David starts with a recap on the Extensions 2.0 Architecture and then covers creating a new extension from scratch, upgrading a 1.0 extension, and how to explore and extend existing extensions.

This is so exciting!  It's great to see that Extension Framework 2.0 will so easily allow ingest of custom data sources.  The declarative extensions are wonderful, but this is just what I've been hoping for.  Great work and excellent video.

Thank you, @wmyers. We're very happy to hear, that you like the direction in which we're developing our features so much! :star_struck:
Extra kudos to @david_lopes and @andreas_grabner for providing such an excellent learning resource 👏
