Continuous delivery (CD) helps reduce the cost, time and risk of delivering changes by allowing for fast incremental updates to applications in production. However, it’s essential to monitor your application after each deployment. You need to be notified immediately if something is wrong or users are having a poor experience.
Rollbar is a leading solution for error monitoring in production. It alerts you when new errors occur after a deployment. It can also tell you which deployment the error was first seen in, and which code changes were likely responsible. This can dramatically speed up your troubleshooting time and help you fix problems faster.
Instacart, a leader in the on-demand marketplace, provides one-hour grocery delivery to users of their app and employs thousands of shoppers across the US to support order fulfillment.
Of the one trillion dollar grocery industry, only 1% of market share currently comes from online grocery sales. As Instacart increasingly captures more of this market, they turn to Rollbar for continuous monitoring of their service’s health.
With a promise of one-hour delivery, and a shopper workforce relying on their apps, Instacart’s services must be up at all times. Rollbar’s proactive alerting and granular error forensics facilitates the continuous integration and deployment pipeline at the heart of Instacart’s service.
Rollbar allows us to go from alerting to impact analysis and resolution in a matter of minutes. It's fully ingrained into our development cycle and monitoring. Without it we would be flying blind.

I'm excited to share a fun and insightful interview our friends at The Changelog recently did with Paul Biggar, Founder at CircleCI (and Rollbar super-user). We're big supporters and fans of The Changelog and we asked their host and master interviewer Adam, to help us produce a few short interviews with our customers. It's a fun project that lets us pull back the curtain and learn more about how our customers monitor their applications and processes for handling errors and deploying code. Enjoy!
