Great companion to Continuous Delivery. Covers more of the development and architecture side of things and, again, should be required reading for every architect and senior developer.

Don't agree with everything he says about database deployment; declarative development is much more useful than trying to code state transitions, especially when structure is in transition. ( )

A little disorganized, but for some reason I found this to be a really engaging book. How we'd actually be able to implement and "scale down" some of these tips to an organization of the size I work for isn't entirely clear. Obviously a good framework can make debugging and troubleshooting much easier, but there's also a level of expertise needed. It would have been interesting to see what experience he recommends as well or approaches for internal training.

The author is skewed towards Java and Unix machines, but it's not at a level where it interferes with the book. (Although I've used Java and I also use Unix/Linux machines so I'm a bit of a bad sample).

I'm tempted to give this book another read.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978739213, Paperback)

Whether it's in Java, .NET, or Ruby on Rails, getting your application ready to ship is only half the battle. Did you design your system to survivef a sudden rush of visitors from Digg or Slashdot? Or an influx of real world customers from 100 different countries? Are you ready for a world filled with flakey networks, tangled databases, and impatient users?

If you're a developer and don't want to be on call for 3AM for the rest of your life, this book will help.

In Release It!, Michael T. Nygard shows you how to design and architect your application for the harsh realities it will face. You'll learn how to design your application for maximum uptime, performance, and return on investment.

Mike explains that many problems with systems today start with the design.
