Reduce the noise in error monitoring with Grouping Suggestions

A major problem in monitoring is dealing with noise. We don’t want to miss important signals, but sorting through all the noise can be a CHORE. A feature just released from Rollbar will help you get closer to that optimal setup faster, with less work — it’s called Grouping Suggestions. The best part is the developer experience of this new feature. If you don’t have time right now to setup grouping, you can start with the default grouping rules, manually merge errors opportunistically while in Rollbar and accept grouping suggestions as you triage errors. Integrate Rollbar for free + get $100 to donate on OpenCollective — head to rollbar.com/changelog.

GitHub launched its own package registry 😱

ICYMI — late Friday afterrnoon GitHub held a live event to announce the beta launch of GitHub Package Registry. GitHub Package Registry is fully integrated with GitHub, so you can use the same search, browsing, and management tools to find and publish packages as you do for your repositories. You can also use the same user and team permissions to manage code and packages together. GitHub Package Registry provides fast, reliable downloads backed by GitHub’s global CDN. And it supports familiar package management tools: JavaScript (npm), Java (Maven), Ruby (RubyGems), .NET (NuGet), and Docker images, with more to come. You can sign up for the beta here.

Are you aware of the recent Git ransomware incident?

Today, Atlassian Bitbucket, GitHub, and GitLab are issuing a joint blog post in a coordinated effort to help educate and inform users of the three platforms on secure best practices relating to the recent Git ransomware incident. So what happened? On Thursday, May 2, the security teams of Atlassian Bitbucket, GitHub, and GitLab learned of a series of user account compromises across all three platforms. These account compromises resulted in a number of public and private repositories being held for ransom by an unknown actor. Each of the teams investigated and assessed that all account compromises were the result of unintentional user credential leakage by users or other third-parties, likely on systems external to Bitbucket, GitHub, or GitLab. The security and support teams of all three companies have taken and continue to take steps to notify, protect, and help affected users recover from these events.

Hacker Laws 💻📖

From Conway’s Law, to The Law of Leaky Abstractions — you’ll find links to laws, theories, principles, and patterns useful to developers — curated by Dave Kerr. Conway’s Law — This law suggests that the technical boundaries of a system will reflect the structure of the organization. It is commonly referred to when looking at organization improvements, Conway’s Law suggests that if an organization is structured into many small, disconnected units, the software it produces will be. If an organization is built more around ‘verticals’ which are orientated around features or services, the software systems will also reflect this.

How I run a company with ADHD

Andrew Askins shared his story of being diagnosed with ADHD and the pressures of ADHD that he faces as a founder. Andrew also shared how he’s getting better at managing himself and ways of coping. I don’t ever want to use ADHD as an excuse or a crutch. But if I don’t acknowledge the challenges the disorder creates I can’t develop coping mechanisms. So I’m acknowledging those challenges and I’m sharing them here. My hope is that others facing the same challenges know they’re not alone. As mentioned on The Changelog #345, we’re launching a new podcast called Brain Science — a podcast for the curious that explores the inner-workings of the human brain to understand behavior change, habit formation, mental health, and the human condition.
