    Folks,

    Mike Nygard's new book, "Release It! Design and Deploy Production-=20
    Ready Software"
    is now in stock and shipping.

    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 survive 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 at 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:

    "It's disconnected from the real world. It's the same as cars
    designed solely in the cool comfort of the lab=97they look great in
    models and CAD systems, but don't work well in the real world. You
    want a car designed by somebody who knows that oil changes are always
    3,000 miles late; that the tires must work just as well on the last
    sixteenth of an inch of tread as on the first; and that you will
    certainly, at some point, stomp on the brakes while you're holding an
    Egg McMuffin in one hand and a cell phone in the other."

    With a combination of case studies and practical advice, Patterns to
    follow and Anti-Patterns to avoid, "Release It!" will help you manage
    the pitfalls that cost companies huge amounts of time and money each
    year.

    "It's brilliant. Absolutely awesome. This book would've saved
    [Really Big Company] hundreds of thousands, if not millions,
    of dollars in a recent release."
    -- Jared Richardson, Agile Artisans, Inc.

    "Agile development emphasizes delivering production-ready code =20
    every iteration.
    This book finally lays out exactly what this really means for
    critical systems today. You have a winner here."
    -- Tom Poppendieck, Poppendieck, LLC.

    thanks,
