We have been using WordPress for some time now (6 years and counting), and though we’ve had some bumps on the road, we are generally happy with it (except for the HTML editor, of course). Back in the day, we ran everything on a single server but due to growing traffic & traffic spikes after big releases, plus the unstable nature of computer hardware, we’ve needed to go with a clustered environment instead. You know, the chaos monkey is always after you!
Holidays are very often great for hacking, besides other things like building medieval landscape puzzles in your kitchen. This is the time of year when there are less deadlines, less going on. If you don’t want to undertake a big project then we have something for you. A holiday puzzle. This time we’ve taken a step away from our historical puzzles and done this a little differently….
ZeroTurnaround Expands CompSci Course Offering on “Java Fundamentals” to Tallinn University of Technology
The Tallinn University of Technology contains not only Java geeks, but also a parking lot made of water!
In mid-2012, ZeroTurnaround established a partnership in Estonia to offer a course called “Java Fundamentals” at Tartu University. With the current semester coming to a close, we’ve decided to take this a step further, expand and do the course at the Tallinn University of Technology. Based on the success and popularity of our Tartu course, it makes sense to expand this to Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, as well.
SAP launched its cloud strategy back in May and one of the solutions they offer is the SAP NetWeaver Cloud, which is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) that lets you provision a Java EE stack on the cloud with couple of clicks.

Job chaining in Jenkins is the process of automatically starting other job(s) after the execution of a job. This approach lets you build multi-step automation pipelines or trigger the rebuild of a project if one of its dependencies is updated. In this article, we will look at a couple of plugins for Jenkins job chaining and see how to use them to build and visualize these pipelines.Read more
Last week was a great week for ZeroTurnaround. On Monday we grew by 10% head count wise and I plotted the trend. It was humongous. My calculations showed that we will reach 600 billion people by the end of the year. This introduced a lot of questions and couple of interesting threads. Also it meant that our first intern ever hired had a lot more on his plate than first expected. I’ve compiled one of the public threads just for you guys. It tells you how and why we have a document Will ZeroTurnaround reach Gravitational Singularity and also to state that we actually don’t pack people together 100% flesh to flesh.
Last week was pretty good, thanks for asking. We’re all booked up for JavaOne (come geek out with us at booth #5510, and get a free JRebel or LiveRebel license) and the Jenkins User Conference in San Francisco in early October, and persistently edging towards our 1.1 release planned for the same time. Today we are releasing the first public version of it, Milestone 2. The release candidate is planned for next Friday. The main features of the 1.1 branch is full control of the application lifecycle. This means you can use LiveRebel to do your initial deploy, updates and undeploy. Also the CLI has matured a lot and has more *nix like tool features. For a complete changes check out the changelog. You can grab this release from the LiveRebel archives page.Read more
