As a developer, you’re going to be making changes to a codebase. That’s why, as Harold Abelson put it, “Programs must be written for people to read.” If a codebase is not clearly formatted, debugging becomes more difficult than it should be. Though usually overlooked, little changes like reformatting and proper indentation of your code can obviously differentiate a professional developer’s code base from someone just learning.

Java is as old as the Internet itself. It is the child of the mid-90s and exploded into the world just as dial-up started to take over suburban phone lines. In a way, it can be seen as the original Boomer of programming languages — not as elderly ancient as the C-families, but not as young and hip as JavaScript and its multitude of frameworks and libraries either.

Though it has been around for some years now, Docker is still one of the most flexible, efficient, and nimble technologies for rapidly building environments to host software of all kinds—especially web-based applications.

If you want to ensure code maintainability over the long term, you should follow best coding practices and style guide rules. One of the best ways to achieve this, while also potentially finding bugs and other issues with your code, is to use a linter. Linters are best described as static code analyzers because they check your code before it even runs. They can work inside your IDE, run as part of your build process, or be inserted into your workflow anywhere in between.

Redis is an open-source in-memory data store. You can use Redis as a database, message broker, or cache. It also supports Lua script evaluation so you can build automation scripts or custom operations on top of your key-value Redis store. Typically, developers use language-specific client libraries when building apps with Redis. These clients abstract Redis’ command-line interface (CLI), making it easier to work with but more work to set up.

How many days off have been marred by debugging race conditions and deadlocks in complex multithreaded, Java code? You’ve probably vowed, Never again and embarked on a quest to always catch race condition errors early by writing tests and debugging. Multithreaded applications are a great way to improve performance, but they also make routine tasks like debugging a little more complicated.

Debugging is one of the most critical aspects of software development cycles. Developers not only leverage it to find and fix errors, but also to uncover potential performance issues in the code. Being able to debug is a core skill every developer needs to have in order to provide valuable, scalable solutions.

Continuous monitoring (CM), also referred to continuous control monitoring (CCM), is an automated process that allows DevOps teams to detect compliance and security threats in their software development lifecycle and infrastructure. Traditionally, businesses have relied on periodic manual or computer-assisted assessments to provide snapshots of the overall health of their IT environment.

As experienced cybersecurity engineers with strong cloud and SaaS backgrounds, the Lightrun team fully recognizes the importance of embedding security as part of the product design and delivery. This document provides a high-level overview of Lightrun's security model, architecture and primary controls. While there are no 100% bulletproof solutions, the Lightrun platform is designed with a significant investment in security from the ground up, as outlined in this document.

Lightrun is a Developer Native Observability Platform, enabling developers to securely add logs, performance metrics and traces to production and staging in real time, on demand.

Insert logs and metrics in real time even while the service is running. Debug monolith microservices, Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, ECS, Big Data workers, serverless, and more.

Developer-Native Observability Platform:

  • Increase developer productivity: Spend less time debugging and more time coding. No more restarting, redeploying and reproducing when debugging.
  • Enhance site reliability: Reduce MTTR and increase customer satisfaction. Identify and resolve bugs faster with less downtime.
  • Resolve bugs faster: Add logs, snapshots, and metrics dynamically to your live app. Skip the traditional CI/CD pipelines.
  • Debug in production, staging, anywhere: Lightrun does not interrupt running apps. Debug in any environment: production, staging, testing, dev, etc.

Save your valuable debugging time and keep your service reliable.
