Meet Sentry: #FunFact

Do you know that Sentry started as a two-person passion project solving their own debugging issues? 10 years later, this personal project grew into a triple unicorn! Here's how team Sentry shares this massive growth in numbers: 4M developers and 100K organizations across 146 countries spanning 6 continents with 790B events processed monthly!

Here's the message from the CEO Milin Desai in arecent announcement:

"It was sixteen years ago that David Cramer pushed the first commit to a side project, and twelve years ago when he and Chris Jennings turned this side project into a company that exists to solve a simple problem: making debugging any software issue dead simple. Since then, we’ve been on a path slightly different from what most people consider “observability.” Sentry isn’t a platform or a company that wants to collect logs and check a monitoring box. Twelve years later, we’re still laser-focused on one key problem: simplifying debuggability for developers. But more importantly, we can’t do this without the support from our developer community."



That's all this week, folks!

Stay Creative, Stay Iconic.
