Monitoring isn't just for ops people and application developers. Front-end developers need just as much visibility into their work as anyone else. How is the front-end developer's relationship to production formed?
When thinking about the things we monitor with our configuration-managed monitoring pipelines, we rarely include the front-end development team or consider their needs from the outset. As the statistics that browser APIs can collect have become more robust, it is becoming easier to standardize the collection of WebPerf stats.
In this ignite, I talk about the conversations and brainstorming that lead to this initiative, about some of the mechanics of collecting the data, and how it has changed the way front-end developers relate to the production applications and monitoring dashboards used by the team. I focus on the cultural aspects of the experience and outcomes, but the code and architecture is discussed here: http://blog.lanyonm.org/articles/2015/03/29/golang-http-stats-collector.html.
