    It's been a busy couple months with lots of travel for me, visiting partners, customers and checking out all the key conferences in the US. One of of the many advantages is I get to meet up with great people I don't get to see that often.

I managed to get some time with Loris and Knox and have an impromptu fireside chat.

  • dashai - A Community DevOps Dashboard

    (07 May 2018)
    Arctiq is happy to launch the dashai Community - "YOUR DevOps Dashboard" Why is having quick, easy access to real-time data so hard? Why does the ability to share insight, as a result of that data, across various teams have such a high cost? I have been asking myself these questions for much of my career in technology. I think back to when my team was responsible for large scale web, and electronic payment systems. We always struggled with monitoring, and more specifically understanding the performance and trending information about our systems.
