Handy project from Datadog.

Do you ever walk to the bathroom across the office only to discover that it’s in use? Then you’ve got to decide if you want to awkwardly hover right outside, or hold it in for a while and try again later.

You will often find us digging into the latest microcontrollers, 3d printers, and more during our regulary maker nights. Recently a new tinkerer joined our team and suggested solving the distributed bathroom state problem with monitoring, while we waited to move into our new office space this fall. We all thought that’d be a fun project!
