So Fresh, So Clean

Hi Friends! As Sensu continues to gain momentum and attract new users, we want to continue to improve the new user onboarding experience, and make it as seamless as possible. Although we think the most direct UX enhancements will come via improvements to Sensu itself, and to the user documentation, we also think the website plays an important role — so we gave it a makeover!
