How Instacart Rebuilt Their Release Monitoring Workflow

How Instacart Rebuilt Their Release Monitoring Workflow

Oct 14, 2022

For a company like Instacart, one of the largest grocery delivery services in the US, a single bug in the codebase could impact millions of customers, shoppers, and their orders. When it came to a major release last year, Instacart’s infrastructure engineering team realized their existing workflow for monitoring the health of hundreds of microservices was no longer sustainable. They needed a better way to detect issues in their codebase before they impacted users.

Join Igor Dobrovitski, Infrastructure Software Engineer at Instacart, and Dhrumil Parekh, PM at Sentry, as they walk through how Instacart used Sentry’s APIs to build a custom internal integration that automatically analyzes new software releases of their front-end and back-end services. In this workshop, we’ll cover:

  • Why Instacart built an integration with Sentry
  • What the development process was like
  • How the team monitors and triages release health with the integration
  • Tips and tricks when building with Sentry
