Product Update: August

August is for Authzed

Another month, another product update! This month included a few major user-facing changes such as¬†live metrics on every permission system and guided tours to walk you through¬†the dashboard and playground. Behind the scenes, we’ve been chugging along on the distributed systems¬†that¬†scale Authzed planet-wide! We also got a new coworker!

ICYMI last time: in addition to posting weekly blog posts, we’re¬†now officially¬†posting monthly wrap-ups of events and new¬†functionality we’ve added to Authzed. We’re also giving everyone a little taste of our Slack’s random channel and all of it’s off-topic goodness.

Entropy from #random

  • We tried Facebook’s new “metaverse”, but it turns out it’s just¬†another way of tricking you into more meetings!
  • I’m not one for conspiracies, but Pfizer did¬†announce phase 2 of their Lyme disease vaccine trials right after the New Yorker published¬†a popular¬†writeup¬†on the subject? This has got to be¬†the vaccine conspiracy everyone’s talking about!
