There is no, no song I could sing
And there is no combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing
We're better together

As the whole blockchain ecosystem is maturing, being led by DeFi, gaming projects, etc., it is more important than ever to have the right tools that have collaboration as a first-class citizen.

That's why I'm happy to announce that you can finally create an organization in Tenderly and collaborate with your teammates easier than ever.

Importance of working in teams

As Tom DeMarco and Tim Lister put it in Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams: "The major problems of our work are not so much technological as sociological in nature.”

This statement is true even more in the open-source ecosystem, especially in blockchain. Everything and everyone is interconnected both explicitly and implicitly.

That means that having the tools that help teams get their jobs done and ship safe code is of paramount importance.

Tenderly Organizations

It has been apparent to us from the very beginning that this ecosystem thrives on collaboration.

That is why starting from today, you can create an organization in Tenderly faster than you can say: "YAM was an exciting experiment, and I'm sorry it went sideways" (so basically less than 7 seconds).

As almost everyone has moved from working in an office to working remotely, having a streamlined collaboration experience helps your team be as productive as ever, and then some.

When you join an organization, you get all of the Tenderly tools you know and love, but supercharged and catered towards teams:

  • All of your projects in one place: context switching has never been so easy, go to your organization's dashboard and jump right into a project that needs your attention
  • All of your team members just an invite away: you don't have to invite each of your team members to every project separately, they automatically become members of all organization's project
  • All of your billing accessible to the right people, always: your ops team will love the fact that they can easily access billing information, without jumping through any hoops or sharing an account with someone

Who is this feature for?

Suppose you are a distributed DeFi team working on the next big protocol. In that case, you can benefit from having all of your transactions in one place and setting up alerts to notify you if something fishy is happening.

Or let's say you're a team creating a DApp, and you have both front-end developers and blockchain developers. Keeping track of deployed addresses has never been so easy!

Finally, if you're a blockchain agency, working with multiple clients, organizations are an excellent fit for you. You can use a separate project for each of your clients.

Basically, if you're a team building on top of an Ethereum based blockchain, organizations are a great way to organize your work, coordinate your team, manage your Smart Contracts, and so much more.

Great, how can I create an organization?

As I already mentioned, it is extremely easy to create an organization in Tenderly. Firstly, in your Tenderly dashboard, open the drop-down menu in the top right corner and click on Organizations.

You’ll be taken to the Organizations screen, where you should click on Create Organization.

Next, come up with your organization’s name and slug (naming things is always the hardest part!).

Finally, Activate the trial for your newly created organizations and you’re good to go!

Oh, and did I mention that inviting a team member is a breeze? Just click on Members > Add Member, enter the e-mail address of your colleague, pick the permissions, and voilà!

I'm an individual, but I still want to use the Pro features

Tenderly has the best free tier in the space. Period. You can use all of our debugging and profiling features without even logging in! But what if you want to play with the shiny toys that are in the Tenderly Pro plan?

We're well aware that not everyone is working in a team. That being said, I'm glad to say that we're introducing a Developer plan in Tenderly.

The Developer plan is almost identical to the Tenderly Pro plan, minus the collaboration and some of the advanced features used by teams.

This plan is excellent for projects that are just starting or developers and freelancers who are working alone on their projects.

That is it for now

In this article, we covered quite a few things:

  • The launch of Tenderly Organizations, which we wanted to make since the very beginning
  • What are the benefits of creating an organization
  • How to create an organization and invite your first team member
  • The launch of the Developer plan, which caters to individuals building on top of Ethereum

Thanks for staying with me until the end of this article. As always, you can reach us on Discord or over at support@tenderly.co. Talk to you soon!
