We are using Pusher ourselves to build out several realtime features for dev.to. Pusher is a super well-respected engineering organization and we're pumped to build on their infrastructure.
Digital Ocean is a much-loved cloud computing platform. I'm always impressed by how well-built and well-documented the Digital Ocean core products are. It's easier said than done, and they've been able to stay ahead of the curve.
Digital Ocean is so easy to get going with, it could pair with your Pusher contest entry for hosting your app's cloud presence. Just an idea. 😄
Bugsnag provides error monitoring for web, mobile, and server apps. It is lightweight on the frontend and very sophisticated on the backend. It integrates with pretty much everything and has a free tier. All around great people on the team as well.
Seriously, great monitoring is so vital to sleeping well at night. Check out Bugsnag.
Timber is one of the most interesting products to take on the logging space. Built around readability and usability, Timber is a logging system you're actually going to be excited about using. We have been Timber users since the beta days ourselves and we now share an office space with them. They are doing great work.
Timber currently integrates most seamlessly with Ruby, Elixir and Node applications. It comes highly recommended from our team.
