At Raygun, we’re a pretty polyglot group of developers. Various parts of Raygun are written in different languages and frameworks - whatever is best for the job. Given the vast amount of C# and the explosive growth in data we’re dealing with, some optimization work has been needed at various times. Most of the big gains come from really re-thinking a problem and approaching it from a whole new angle.
Diagnosing and finding the root cause of issues is a crucial skill in software development. Software engineers spend the majority of their time reading and understanding existing code. Because of this, knowing how to debug your applications with proficiency will save you time and make you more effective.
Using NPS as an engineering metric gets product owners into hot water. A good NPS score is seen in software communities as the benchmark for a product-first company and regularly features on executive and IPO reports. It's so common that over two-thirds of the Fortune 1000 claim to use it. But imagine if every software tool you used sent you regular NPS surveys? Response rates will suffer and the metric will slowly become less and less valuable over time.
With 900 billion devices running on Windows 10, the future is bright for the Universal Windows Platform (UWP). UWP’s strength lies in its ability to adapt itself completely to the native user interface - whether that’s a computer, tablet, Xbox or IoT device. It’s a win-win; users get a consistent experience as they consume across devices, while developers get easier deployments.
Raygun’s CTO Jeremy Norman chats with Alex Williams of The New Stack to give a technical demo of the multithreaded trace feature in Raygun APM. Jeremy offers practical examples of how traces work, how you can monitor microservices more accurately, and why Raygun is different from other APM tools.
Debugging is the art of removing bugs — hopefully quickly, and in this guide, I’ll show you multiple ways to debug React. In terms of React, we can have many different kinds of bugs, including: There are more categories than this, but it’s enough to get started debugging in React. Let’s open by talking about how to create a small application using React and how to debug it.
Raygun gathers a great deal of data about how users are interacting with your applications - from errors and crashes to users affected by performance problems. We help thousands of teams gain visibility into the health of their apps - and one of the best ways developers do that is with Raygun’s dashboards. When we first launched dashboards in 2017, we knew you needed them to be easy to use, customizable, and actionable.
Some development problems are too complex, some timelines too tight, and some projects too greenfield for established teams to tackle. When you need to create a new team of developers for an ambitious project, the venerable cross-functional or tiger team provides the perfect model for bringing a ragtag crew together to achieve a shared goal.
