Learn how to build more reliable and resilient software, systems, and teams in the latest issue of Increment. Highlights include:
- Embrace your inner incident commander: Tanya Reilly offers a look at how the principles of incident command, originally developed for firefighters in the 1970s, can help engineering teams put out (metaphorical) fires today.
- Everything is broken, and it's okay: Accepting that imperfect things still work is fundamental to preventing failures from becoming catastrophes.
- How to build organizational resilience: Learn how teams better equip themselves to tackle the unknown and unexpected by encoding resilience into an organization’s culture.
- Sneak preview: We're working on an experimental prototype to help you mock the Stripe API for testing and would love your feedback to define the shape of our roadmap. Check out the preview here.
- Discover cards in Canada: Businesses in Canada can now expand their global reach and accept payments using Discover, Diners Club, and China UnionPay cards.
Financial reporting updates:
- You can schedule and receive Balance and Payout reports on a specific frequency directly from the Dashboard instead of manually requesting them.
- You can customize which columns to include when downloading Balance or Payout reports from Dashboard or via the API.
- For a smoother integration process, you can access test mode Balance and Payout reports through the API and Dashboard.
- Connect updates:
- Test mode API keys: Previously, the API sent back information for an Account or Person object even when using a test mode API key. To prevent inadvertent access to sensitive fields, we now require that you use a live mode API key to retrieve these fields.
Faster Stripe CLI builds on M1 Macs: We now support native M1 builds for the CLI to make your development faster and more efficient. Run
brew update && brew upgrade stripeto get the update.
