The old adage that drastic times call for drastic measures holds true as never before. It has never been more important to act fast and to be decisive. But it’s also more important than ever to not lose sight of your long-term business objectives. Read more.
We’ve all been frustrated by a dimly lit pantry or closet and struggled with battery powered lights that weren’t bright enough, drained batteries too quickly, or were difficult to install. Mr Beams’ collection of wireless lighting designs help shoppers illuminate even the trickiest spaces without power or special tools.
After supporting their Magento 1 site for over five years, Classy Llama helped Mr Beams evaluate options for upgrading their site before M1 end-of-life. The Mr Beams marketing team wanted to manage content and build landing pages without a developer. They were also attracted to using a solution that would remove their need for security patches and hosting fees. Additionally, they’d need support connecting their new…

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series An Introduction to Prometheus and Metrics. Earlier posts include What is Prometheus?, and What are Prometheus Exporters?. This is the most recent post in the series. Last time we ended by musing that Prometheus, while an open source project, still creates a case of vendor lock-in for its users. Getting metrics IN to Prometheus is easy. Getting metrics out is less easy. Changing-to or trying-out a new metric system is even less easy. Today we’re going to take a look at the Open Telemetry project. Open Telemetry is an open […]
This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series An Introduction to Prometheus and Metrics. Earlier posts include What is Prometheus?. This is the most recent post in the series. In our first article, we covered four core Prometheus concepts and used those four concepts to instrument a simple service written in NodeJS. One part of the Prometheus ecosystem we didn’t talk about was exporters. That’s going to be our topic today. However, before we get to exporters we need to talk a little bit more about instrumentation. The Limits of Instrumentation Under ideal circumstances, the best course of […]
This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series An Introduction to Prometheus and Metrics. This is the first post in the series. One surprising thing about the software instrumentation world, a world that helps us see what our systems are doing, is how opaque the instrumentation tools themselves can be.

A few weeks ago I started working with gRPC for the first time. These days gRPC stands for “general-purpose remote procedure call”, but I still think of it as “Google remote procedure call”, as it’s a project that came out of, and is primarily maintained, by Google engineers. It’s a system for building APIs, similar to SOAP or REST, that allow you to invoke a function that’s on another computer. It sits somewhere between REST and SOAP in terms of complexity and formalness, and I might have more to say about it later. What I wanted to mention today was […]
