Do you use Slack as part of your DevOps?
Figure: See how Slack can be setup to improve your Devops
With all these different tools being used to collect information in your application, a developer will frequently need to visit many different sites to get information like:
- Was the last build successful?
- What version is in production?
- What errors are being triggered on the app?
- Is the server running slow?
- What is James working on?
This is where a tool like Slack comes in handy. It can help your team aggregate this information from many separate sources into one dedicated channel for your project. The other benefits also include a new team member instantly having access to the full history of the channel as well so no conversations are lost.
At SSW we integrate Slack with:
- Octopus Deploy
- Visual Studio
Even better, you can create bots in slack to manage things like deployments and updating release notes.
