This past week we released Exceptionless 4.0.2 and Exceptionless.NET 4.0.3, consisting of maintenance updates that fixed several usability issues for self hosters, various performance, issues, bug fixes, and some general improvements. (more…)
Case study time!
Today we’ve got a great example of Exceptionless helping software developers identify major issues in their web applications affecting thousands of users.
In this case, the problem was major enough that the development team stopped using WPF and rewrote their entire UI layer!
Prioritizing your bug fixes and development time in general can be a daunting task.
Sometimes, as developers, we want to work on this shiny widget or this annoying bug, and we don’t really have anything in our face telling us to quit focusing on our dreams and work on what matters to the bottom line.
I can hear you over there: “But, my dreams are important!” Well, yes, but you don’t get to have fun working on those until you’ve made your users happy by fixing the bugs that are affecting the majority of them or expanding on that feature that they are all using every single time they use your app.
We’ve got something that will let you get those pesky tasks off your plate though, so you can move on to the fun stuff!
It’s been a while since we introduced filtering and searching when we launched Exceptionless V2.0, so we decided recently that we wanted to take the feedback we’ve received and do a round of improvements to it.
You may have already noticed the changes, but if not then the next time you log in you will see that the top bar has changed, giving you much quicker access to filtering and more upfront information. (more…)
We’re kind of excited, in case you couldn’t tell. Big stuff in here, like session tracking (#BOOM), licensing changes (less confusion – it’s a good thing), and posting via HTTP GET (such easy, much wow)!
Lets get into some of the details… (more…)
Through our adventures while building Exceptionless, we’ve kept open source, automation, and ease of use in mind. With that, we think our API, which utilizes Swagger and Swashbuckle to automatically generate, update, and display documentation (which means it works automatically on self-hosted environments), is a great resource for our users that want to get their hands dirty and use Exceptionless data to roll their own tools, dashboards, etc.
Lets take a closer look at the API, how to use it, and some quick examples of what can be done. (more…)
We can prove it! Exceptionless 2.0 is real, and we’ve got evidence!
We’ve been wanting to give everyone a sneak peak for a long time, and today we are excited to finally be able to. Watch the video above to see a high level overview of the new UI and features.
There are still quite a few small things to take care of before we release it, but we are happy to say that we are around the 85% mark as far as being finished. Once we get closer, we will be putting up a live demo/preview site for everyone to play with and give feedback on.
Please don’t hesitate to give us any feedback you may have after watching the video or reading the transcript below. We want to hear it!
As we plug away at Exceptionless 2.0, perfecting and future-proofing it, we wanted to stop and take the time to talk about AngularJS, how we are using it in version two, and what benefits we’re going to get out of it.
Naturally, we want to maintain all current functionality while supporting planned V2.0 features like search and filtering. We also want it to be static and use the REST API for everything. We’re pretty determined to not cheat on that point. Then, thinking ahead, building it to support easily adding new features in the future is a huge priority.
Lets look at these points in a bit more detail. (more…)
