Reboot Heroku as Last Step After Pushing

A computing tip from my friend and WordPress web engineer extraordinaire Chris Marslender.

When pushing code to a Heroku app, make the last step be an action to reboot the app, with something like Hubot. So any time code changes, the server restarts. So if someone is offline and the server isn’t running, you can push a change to get it working again without pinging them.
