3. Pick of the Week

This week, I'm picking Datadog, the first sponsor I accepted for the Java Weekly newsletter (ever).

I soft-launched the sponsorships six months ago and refused a handful of companies up until this point – for various reasons (mainly because I wasn't convinced by their products).

I hadn't tried Datadog before, but I've used a lot of other APM solutions out there, so I knew what to expect. I've been playing with their system for a week now and I'm more than happy to have them as the first official sponsor.

It's a solid, super mature solution, it's actually useful from the very start, without me having to spend a full day setting it up, and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

So, they're my pick for this week.
