In this part of the series, I’m going to add Sentry to the monitoring stack. For those who do not know, Sentry is an open-source cross-platform crash reporting and aggregation platform written in Python. I know about it for several years now, since the time it supported only a few languages. A lot has changed since my last use of it: new domain, new languages, new integrations. Today it has integrations with most of the modern languages and frameworks like Elixir, React, React-Native, Go.
