I was chatting with some fellow tech industry types the other day, when the conversation inevitably turned to cool (“useful”) software components that we’d used on recent projects. It struck me that I’ve worked on a couple of projects (both client projects, and personal projects) that have had me trialling and using a variety of useful little libraries / services and approaches.
It also struck me that beyond the odd pull-request / issue raising on GitHub I’d not had any contact with the authors of said software to say thanks, nor had I really shared the knowledge about what I’d found and how I’d used it. The result was the following “commitment”
So, now I have to have a blog series covering software components / services that I use on projects.
I’m going to start with a service I’ve found really useful on a couple of projects recently, check out the first post in the series “Error Tracking with Sentry“
