Implementing OpenTelemetry in Angular application

OpenTelemetry can be used to trace Angular applications for performance issues and bugs. OpenTelemetry is an open-source project under the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) that aims to standardize the generation and collection of telemetry data. Telemetry data includes logs, metrics, and traces. Angular is a frontend Javascript framework that uses HTML and Typescript. It’s a popular framework used by many organizations for their frontend applications.

Debug JavaScript in Mobile Safari (iOS) in 8 easy steps

Debugging JavaScript is an inevitable part of web development, and not the nicest one. Debugging jobs always seem to pop up when you’re already buried under piles of work, and a teammate pings you about an issue that was overlooked in testing and has been causing frustrations since your last release. That’s why it helps to be prepared for that eventuality, and equipped with the developer tools to help you debug faster.

DevOps.JS Workshop: Tracking errors and slowdowns across JS applications using Sentry

Join Simon Zhong, Sentry Sales Engineer, as he goes through setting up Sentry step-by-step to get visibility into our frontend and backend. Once integrated, he will track and triage errors + transactions surfaced by Sentry from our services to understand why/where/how errors and slowdowns occurred within our application code. This workshop took place live at DevOps.JS Conference on March 21, 2022.

Kubernetes Easy Button - Running Your JS Apps on Kubernetes with Shipa

Kubernetes is becoming a dominant platform for running workloads. As the Kubernetes ecosystem continues to advance capturing a wider swath of workloads, eventually your code might be headed to Kubernetes. As a Tech Lead at Shipa responsible for front-end engineering e.g what you see on the screen, my job crosses JavaScript Frameworks and Kubernetes on a daily basis.

Performance Monitoring and more updates to Sentry for Electron

For those who aren’t that familiar with it, Electron is an open-source framework that allows developers to build cross-platform desktop applications in JavaScript. Some of the most popular desktop applications like VS Code, Slack, Discord, and Atom, are all built in Electron.

OpenTelemetry and Distributed Tracing in JavaScript

In our Configuring OpenTelemetry in Ruby blog post, we showed how to configure OpenTelemetry in a Ruby on Rails backend. In this post, we’ll cover how to configure OpenTelemetry in the front-end JavaScript in order to measure performance of browser and mobile devices and how to configure distributed tracing to work across the frontend and back end telemetry collection. Let’s dive in!

Kubernetes for the JavaScript Developer - Part Two - Deploy to Kubernetes

Continuing on from Part One where we went through a brief history of containers and Kubernetes then Dockerized a NodeJS application, now we are ready to deploy to Kubernetes. If this is your first or nth time deploying to Kubernetes, Shipa makes this simple. You don’t have to worry about authoring multiple Kubernetes manifests and templates to deploy your application, all you need is an image.
