Let's face it, your code is going to have errors, even code written by a kick-ass developer such as yourself. When bad things happen, it's nice to know that Honeybadger has your back.
Honeybadger makes you a DevOps hero by combining error monitoring, uptime monitoring, and chron monitoring into a single, easy to use the platform, all for way less than you're probably paying now.
Honeybadger monitors and sends error alerts in real-time with all the context needed to see what's causing the error and where it's hiding in your code so you can quickly fix it and get on with your day.
The included uptime and chron monitoring also let you know when your external services are having issues or your background jobs go AWOL or silently fail.
Go to Honeybadger.io and discover how Starr, Josh, and Ben created a 100% bootstrapped monitoring solution. Why is this important? Self-funding means they only answer to you, the developer, rather than a venture capital overlord.
