Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
When you use a website or software application and receive an error, what do you do? Chances are, you give up and stop using the site or program. It happens thousands, probably millions of times each day. The problem is, if you don't let the business know, they probably have no idea that the error is occurring. Exceptionless gives the software developers behind these websites and programs a way to log, track, and receive notifications for errors, automatically, allowing for inherently better code and fewer customer facing errors.
In order to promote the use of this technology within the community and support developers writing and publishing less buggy code, the Exceptionless team decided to take the project open source. What that means for developers and software teams is that they can host the service for free, if they have the resources, and contribute to the project by adding features, reporting bugs, and requesting enhancement. Affordable hosting is also available through Exceptionless' website, if resources aren't readily available for developers to host it themselves.
Developers interested in trying out Exceptionless, and maybe contributing, can visit the project on GitHub. There they will find instructions for getting everything up and running, including hosting it themselves. Contributors are required to read and sign a license agreement, follow proper coding conventions, include passing tests in their code, and follow standard GitHub procedures for requesting their enhancements be added to the primary project.
Exceptionless is a privately-held software company, established in 2013, specializing in the creation of software tools that help developers fight errors within their applications. The team believes in being open and available to customers, and listening to what they have to say. Their highest priority is the success of the customer, followed by continued innovation of the product.
