Organizations today must embrace a modern observability approach to develop user-centric and reliable software. This isn’t just about tools; it’s about processes, mentality, and having developers actively involved throughout the software development lifecycle up to production release. In recent years, the concept of observability has gained prominence in the world of software development and operations.

This post will discuss remote debugging in VS Code and how to improve the remote debugging experience to maximize debugging productivity for developers. Visual Studio Code, or VS Code, is one of the most popular IDEs. Within ten years of its initial release, VS Code has garnered the top spot among popularity indices, and its community is growing steadily. Developers love VS Code not only for its simplicity but also due to its rich ecosystem of extensions, including the support for debugging.

In this age of complex software systems, code instrumentation patterns define specific approaches to debugging various anomalies in business logic. These approaches offer more options beyond the built-in debuggers to improve developer productivity, ultimately creating a positive impact on the software’s commercial performance. In this post, let’s examine the various code instrumentation patterns for Node.js.

Debugging in production is always a necessary evil. No matter how well your code is written and reviewed, bugs are bound to appear, and their consequences are there for your users to see. While debugging any app has challenges, debugging legacy systems is a different ballgame. From unfamiliarity with the codebase to a lack of knowledge about the tech, your developers can find themselves aimlessly searching for solutions where solutions don’t exist.

Code instrumentation is an essential practice in modern software development. Not only does it aid in debugging, it ultimately impacts the MTTR (Mean Time to Resolve) for software running in production. With changing software architectures and deployment patterns over the years, approaches to code instrumentation have also undergone a significant shift.

Logging is usually an afterthought. When we're creating a feature, we often neglect to think about how we'll observe the actual behavior, and even if we do end up adding proper logging messages - we rarely consider the implications those log lines will have on our bottom line. It's a hidden cost factor, but one that continuously comes up in conversations we have with practitioners. To help shed a light on this topic we gathered a panel of industry veterans, who will come together on November 8th to discuss the problem in depth and offer a completely new approach to solve it.

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.
