Sentry Keeps Eventbrite Focused on Growth, Not Performance Issues
Eventbrite, a global event management and digital ticketing company, was already preparing to move to a continuous deployment model when the pandemic brought a massive shift from in-person to virtual events. The shift meant the team needed to quickly adapt to increasing demand, scale its services, and ideally continue with its transition to CI/CD. Jaylum Chen, staff software engineer at Eventbrite, and his team needed an application monitoring solution that could help them discover and triage errors across multiple platforms in real-time, while also minimizing alert noise and giving them visibility into the health of every release.
By taking the mystery out of debugging and revealing trends in application health, Sentry ensures Chen and his team can focus their time on building new features to support their skyrocketing demand.
Effective Cross-Platform Application Monitoring with Sentry
Organizations worldwide rely on Sentry application monitoring to provide unprecedented context and insight, reducing time to remediation and keeping code performing flawlessly. The addition of Sentry Performance Monitoring enables engineering and development teams to more quickly identify performance issues by tracing them to poor-performing API calls along with related errors. Sentry can also help them surface trends to proactively prevent future performance issues, saving time and dramatically reducing costs.
With Release Health now configured by default, teams can track how a product release is trending from the very second it’s live to the point it starts to erode. This allows them to more quickly detect bad releases by gauging the levels of adoption and the percentage of crash-free sessions and crash-free users, accelerating continuous deployment efforts.
Armed with rich insights, product teams can prevent costly downtime and meet high customer expectations while maximizing efficiency and improving their workflows so that more time can be spent creating new services and applications that add business value.
Sentry’s mission is to eliminate the havoc and potential financial loss associated with defective software by making best-in-class application monitoring available to all software teams. Sentry helps developers discover, triage, and prioritize code errors and performance bottlenecks in real time in order to deliver the best possible end-user experiences complementing your systems monitoring tools. More than 60,000 organizations worldwide — and many of the world’s best software companies — including Atlassian, Cloudflare, Disney, GitHub, and Microsoft, use Sentry to diagnose, fix, and optimize the performance of their code.
