Episode 38: Application Monitoring with Open Source Unicorn Sentry
David Cramer is the Co-Founder & CTO of Sentry, the open source error tracking and performance monitoring unicorn company used by over 3.5M developers and 85K organizations.
The company's most popular open source project, also called sentry, has over 31K stars and lets users monitor and fix crashes in real-time. The server is in Python, but it contains a full API for sending events from any language, in any app.
Sentry has raised $217M from investors including Accel, NEA, and Bond.
