We have recently been doing some work on Uber Prof, mostly in the sense of a code review, and I wanted to demonstrate how easy it was to add a new feature. The problem is that we couldn’t really think of a nice feature to add that we didn’t already have.
Then we started thinking about features that aren’t there and that there wasn’t anything in Uber Prof to enable, and we reached the conclusion that one limitation we have right now is the inability to analyze your application’s behavior beyond the session’s level. But there is actually a whole set of bad practices that are there when you are using multiple sessions.
That led to the creation of a new concept the Cross Session Alert, unlike the alerts we had so far, those alerts looks at the data stream with a much broader scope, and they can analyze and detect issues that we previously couldn’t detect.
I am going to be posting extensively on some of the new features in just a bit, but in the meantime, why don’t you tell me what sort of features do you think this new concept is enabling.
And just a reminder, my architecture is based around Concepts & Features.
