Timbr - a Slack App to resolve production incidents quicker

Jeff Kao @j_ckao

Hey folks, I'm looking for some #product-feedback-request!

I built Timbr, a Slack app to help engineers co-ordinate production-sensitive events more easily. For example, it'd be really convenient for me to be able to pull up the fact that somebody ran a database migration when I'm trying to debug why things aren't working on my website.

Timbr solves this by providing a way for engineers to announce that they're performing database migrations or other production-sensitive events and making it easy to surface these events all through Slack. We even provide a web interface to make it easy to share and slice-and-dice your events.

Happy to answer any questions :)
