Project Lassie: who let the dog out!

The Bazaarvoice Platform Infrastructure Team recently open sourced project Lassie. Lassie is a Java library that can manipulate the new DataDog screenboards. The Lassie library can create, get, update, and delete the DataDog screenboards via the REST API.

We use DataDog across various teams to collect metrics at both a system-wide and application level to give our teams a clearer view of what’s happening across all environments.

The project was developed by a Bazaarvoice summer intern, Mykal Thomas. Mykal is a senior at Georgia Tech.
