At this moment, billions of people are rushing to the internet for work, entertainment, shopping — everything, really. It’s great that we developed this virtual world and can keep the lights on, despite what’s happening outside.
On the other hand, cloud systems and developers are under pressure to meet an unparalleled demand. At Dashbird, we have always thought developers deserve the most efficient tools to discover and resolve issues in seconds in order to keep cloud apps running smoothly.
