Matt Watson – Founder of Stackify, Developer, Lover of Clouds & Dev Tools, and Obsessed with making developers lives easier
Matt Watson is the Founder & CEO of Stackify. He has been a developer/hacker for over 15 years and loves solving hard problems with code. He sold his first startup, VinSolutions, for $150 million and started Stackify to solve the biggest challenge he had as the CTO of VinSolutions. The first problem is that it takes too many tools to monitor and troubleshoot application errors. The second is developers don’t even have access to the tools, and they should, and the third is that the tools need to be affordable for all developers. Stackify solves these problems by combining application performance monitoring (APM) with server monitoring, app metrics, advanced error tracking, and log management in a single easy to use platform for developers. Matt is also skilled at SEO, blogging and content marketing. Stackify receives hundreds of thousands of monthly visits as a result of Matt’s successful content marketing. Matt founded the Stackify in 2012 to solve three key problems.
