    Why is logging data critical to Instacart’s customers?

    Being able to have our customers find and order what they want is critical to our success and scale. With tens of thousands of new customers trying out Instacart every month delivering a world class user experience is critical. Logging is a critical part of delivering that experience as when an issue arises our teams need to be able to find, identity, alert and fix bugs as fast as possible.
