Building Sentry: Source maps and their problems

Welcome to our series of blog posts about all the nitty-gritty details that go into building a great debug experience at scale. Today, we’re looking at the shortcomings of source maps. Other than Python, JavaScript is the oldest platform that Sentry properly supports, which makes sense considering many Python services (including Sentry itself) have a JavaScript front-end. As the popularity of transpiling grew, the need for tools to debug transpiled code in production became obvious.

Sentry for Data: Optimizing Airflow with Sentry

In our Sentry for Data series, we explain precisely why Sentry is the perfect tool for your data team. The present post focuses on how we optimized Airflow for deeper insights into what goes wrong when our data pipelines break. Data enables Sentry’s go-to-market teams by generating high-quality leads and tailored marketing campaigns. Of course, data is also used to steer the business by influencing how we think about Sentry pricing, future opportunities, and feature roadmap.

The Sentry Workflow - Resolve

Errors suck. And you don’t want to spend too much of your time fixing them, dealing with them, investigating them, etc. In our Workflow blog post series, we look at how to optimize your, well, workflow, from crash to resolution. At this point in our workflow (check out the first and second posts in this series), we’ve minimized the impact of errors on the development process by creating infrastructure and culture equipped to handle unexpected issues.

Sentry for Good

Errors are expensive; they steal resources allocated for other things and potentially negatively impact revenue and user sentiment. And, for teams comprised of volunteers working in their spare time, errors can take weeks to triage and resolve. So, despite what Google might tell you, Sentry for Good is not merely a solution to your pet’s pesky pheromone problems (although it is clearly also that, if PetSmart’s Google results are any indication).

Sentry Integration Platform: Observability with Rookout

There are a lot of things we, at Sentry, love about Rookout, a Sentry Integration Platform early adopter. First of all, Sentry loves purple, and Rookout loves purple. And, Rookout helps fix software in production, and Sentry helps fix software in production. Together, the two tools cut time from error to resolution. Honestly, Rookout and Sentry integrating is just kismet.
