We’re super happy to announce some big upgrades to Checkly’s alerting features for 2019 ????. We listened to what our customers were missing alerting wise and what parts we could polish and upgrade. Two things popped up again and again...

2018 was an interesting year for Node.js frameworks and open source software in general. Developer communities discussed the role of corporate sponsorship and how to maintain a project used by millions but not supported financially.

At Checkly, we run our browser checks on AWS EC2 instances managed by Terraform. When shipping a new version, we don’t want to interrupt our service, so we need zero downtime deployments. Hashicorp has their own write up on zero downtime upgrades, but it only introduces the Terraform configuration without any context, workflow or other details that are needed to actually make this work in real life™.

The world of DevOps is a pretty confusing place for folks just starting out. Even figuring out what “DevOps” means can be hard. Is it CI/CD with Kubernetes and Serverless to drive Agile product iterations? Or is it SSH-ing into a box and restarting Apache? You guessed it. All of the above and most things in between.

Since launch, we didn’t pay too much attention to the front end performance of the main Checkly web app. Shame on us. What better reason to dive into this than the publishing of the excellent The Cost of Javascript in 2018 by Google’s Addy Osmani? TL;DR: it took about half a day to go from an abysmal 34 to a 100 Lighthouse score on our Vue.js app.
