Track Datadog metrics in Sleuth

Data from monitoring tools like Datadog are useful for developers to help them understand whether the code they've deployed is healthy or needs to be fixed or rolled back, or when there is an incident to investigate. As a deployment mission control, Sleuth helps developers see metrics data from a developer-centric point of view - by deployment - and interpret such data for them. ‍‍

Managing Remote Teams: 3 Steps to Success

At times, directing projects in multiple locales from a desktop or laptop feels like conducting an orchestra in the dark. Coordinating with diverse, remote teams of developers producing software on an agile schedule of continual updates and releases can be especially nerve-wracking. At Sleuth, we’re crushing the remote-work challenge because, in 20 years of managing from afar, we’ve learned a thing or two — actually three — about how to do it right.

Three meetings your remote startup must have (and one to avoid)!

As a small startup, and a fully remote one to boot (thanks COVID), having only the “right” amount of meetings is crucial. Over-index on meetings and your team will get nothing done. Go too far the other way and your team won’t understand the vision, why you are doing what you are doing, and won’t be able to form the personal bonds that are required for a small team to succeed. We set aside 45 minutes every morning to discuss pretty much anything and everything.

Track, Debug, and Fix Errors with Sleuth and Sentry

Developer teams shipping software frequently are in a constant state of change. Understanding the state of their code at a given point of time is sometimes clear as mud. The Sentry | Sleuth integration is focused on helping developers automate the annoyances of deploying software, tracking the health of a release, and providing clarity on how to resolve critical code issues.

Set Up Your Deployment Pipeline Like a Rockstar!

Nowadays, software development teams utilize continuous delivery or some variation, to create better, faster, more accurate software releases. Continuous delivery is a DevOps practice that empowers software teams to continuously ship code directly to an environment once automated tests pass. Continuous delivery is facilitated through the deployment pipeline. You can read more about it in a previous post.

Automatically (or manually) tag your Sleuth deployments

All deployments are not created equal, but you'd never know it from your Slack channel notifications. In reality, some deployments you really care about, as they contain things like API changes or database migrations, and you want that information to surface. We created tags in Sleuth for this very reason. Out of the box, Sleuth matches files in your deployment with known patterns, and if any are found, tags your deployments automatically.
