ZeroTurnaround are releasing version 2.0 of LiveRebel today!
What is LiveRebel about, dude?
LiveRebel 2.0 is an out-of-the-box solution to end slow, inefficient production deployment processes that often happen at 3 AM by overworked operations staff.
With LiveRebel, now every single update is:
instantaneous in case of minor updates
What does this mean to you?
It means that when something does go wrong, as it inevitably does, there is a panic button to press that will make it all better.
It means that because your application stays online, your updates can be done during the day and businesses don’t have to hide from their customers or lose a cent of revenue.
LiveRebel 2.0 now supports multiple update strategies:
Hotpatching strategy updates the application instance in-memory, without pausing for a moment.
Rolling restart strategy takes each server down at a time for update, but the users don’t notice a thing as they are automatically routed to instance with their session.
Offline update strategy will take all servers down and do a clean restart, the user requests will still resume when servers are up. How to install it?
Nice walk-through is available
here , but it’s simple. Just 3 steps: Here’s is a very short video, that shows the install process:

I was inspired by
Lydia‘s talk during FOSDEM to share some thoughts about using trolls as a marketing asset.
I am sure you know what is a Troll, but anyhow there it is, directly from UD:
A dumbass who makes idiotic posts in message boards newsgroups for the sole purpose of pissing people off, often lacking in intelligence. Sometimes compared to people who pass you by on the sidewalk then grab you in inappropriate places.
More “official” definition, can be found
here at Wikipedia.
Trolls in action
I know couple of companies that are feeding the trolls, yes they have special policy and people to do that.
The reason is quite simple:
More page views,
More banner views,
More money in company’s pocket.
Trolls & flame-wars
I know some companies that are publishing flame-war blog posts to attract more trolls why?
More trolls = more content
More content == more developers to fight for their positions
More developers == more leads
More leads == More sales
More sales == More money in company’s pocket.
