We’re so happy to welcome Dorte Rosenbom to the Opbeat team. As our new Operations Manager, Dorte will take the reins of our day-to-day operations, make sure the office is in good shape and help ensure that the team is fully caffeinated at all times.
Today we’re releasing the new Dashboard.
Your Dashboard will quickly give you a detailed overview of the current state of your apps. For each app, the Dashboard shows you the 95th percentile response time as well as error occurrences over time and any releases made in the past 24 hours. Additionally, you’ll be able to see the average response time, the number of new error groups, and how many open errors are still assigned to you.
Will Binns-Smith (@wbinnssmith), former Atlassian developer and now Senior Software Engineer at brightweel, explains what frontend web developers can learn from the Node.js and npm ecosystem.
For example how small, focused userland modules allow you to try out new features and APIs before they end up in the browsers (or after they are removed again!).
Developers are shipping more and more 3rd party code in the form of npm modules and Dan explains why it is important to care about quality and security vulnerabilities even in your dev dependencies.
We’re excited and proud to have joined the Node.js Foundation as a Silver Member and we look forward to working with the Foundation to help advance the development of the Node.js platform and grow and support the community.
You can read the official announcement here. I also did a Q&A on why we joined, why we’ve built Opbeat for Node.js and why we think Node.js is important to both the developer community as well as the enterprise.
One of the best things about having Opbeat available on mobile is the ability to be notified when your apps are experiencing errors. What we discovered, however, was that sometimes our users’ apps produce a large number of notifications. The reasons can vary from having lots of programming errors to simply having a larger team that is collaborating on Opbeat. So we set out to fix it.Read on→
Patrick Mueller (@pmuellr) is the official cat herder of the Node.js Tracing Working Group and Senior Node Engineer at NodeSource. We met up with him at the Nodevember conference in Nashville, Tennessee and talked about debugging Node.js applications and the work carried out by the Node.js Tracing Working Group.
Our good friend Mathias Buus (@mafintosh), mad science hacker and author of over 400 npm modules, gives another great live coding demo. In this talk he explains how to build “actually usable” offline websites with Node.js using LevelDB, hyperlog and WebRTC. Read on→
