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. ‍‍

One of our most commonly requested integrations, Datadog cloud monitoring, was announced last week on the Datadog blog! Sleuth organizes your deployments into projects, which collect and organize key data from your code sources and their associated staging environments. This data consists of metrics and errors.

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.

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.

Here at Sleuth, we live in Zoom, and have accumulated a list of tips to make video meetings better. I'm going to talk about three quick tips to go from a muddled dungeon dweller to a clear, engaging talking head, all without spending a dime. If you want even more, the above video shows you 9 more tips, including one advanced (but still completely free) tip to turn a video call into a real-time broadcast experience.

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.

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.

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.

Andy, a regular viewer of Don's dev-focused Twitch streams, created a 3D-printed, 100 LED RGB Sleuth logo, and this is its unboxing. Don and Andy also get it working, connected to the internet, then Don extends his Twitch chat bot to allow viewers to change the logo's lights. The stream finishes with Don hooking the logo up to Twitch follow events so that when a viewer starts following, the logo lights up. This video is a lightly edited from the original Twitch stream. Huge thanks to Andy for building and sharing such a cool project!

Welcome to the first question in our Twitch highlights series #AskSleuth. What's a DevOps job? What does a DevOps engineer do? How to get started on DevOps as a developer? Don Brown from Sleuth.io answers.

Deployment tracking, move fast without breaking things. When a deployment causes downtime, reduced performance, or customer facing bugs, Sleuth knows. Drawing from the best in class tools your engineering teams already use such as source control, APM, issue and error tracking. We equip your teams with the data needed to dramatically reduce downtime!

How Sleuth Deployment Tracking Works:

  • Detect: When a deployment causes downtime, reduced performance, or bugs, our impact detection engine knows. Quickly identify, resolve, and re-deploy.
  • Alert: Real-time Slack notifications fine-tuned to only the information you care about. Consolidate all your DevOps-related notifications into a single, powerful channel.
  • Command: Track releases from staging to production. Know what's deployed, and what's coming. Understand the impact, and fix shit when it goes wrong.
  • Control: Create order and eliminate release lag with PR-based workflows. Manage approvals, lock deployments, and ship with confidence.

Deploy Your Code With Confidence!
