Ramen: Partners in Heart and Mind

We’re thrilled that Ramen exists and couldn’t be more delighted that they asked us to be a core partner. How could we not support a company that used Tracker to help them crush it at the 11/2013 LAUNCH Hackathon and win first place.

Airbrake: The Art of Fingerpointing

Airbrake is a great tool for identifying errors generated by other apps all in one place. I guess if you’re the offending app you might call it a rat, snitch, stool pigeon or fink, but to the rest of us it’s the canary in the coal mine that can save your butt. Read more...
