Hi Alert

There’s no time like the present. Takipi recently introduced a new critical error alerts feature with real-time notifications. According to the post, the update sends custom alerts using messaging tools including Slack to deliver custom alerts for faster fixes.

Stay Tuned

PagerDuty introduces its Partner Spotlight, a new monthly blog installment. June’s spotlight shines a light on monitoring and diagnostics with Red Canary, Opsee and RayGun.

Rainforest lays out the early steps in creating a functional test checklist, from recognizing user stories and behaviors to putting the more common actions first and in smaller doses.
