Deployment – If It Hurts, Do It Again

If deployment hurts, do it again.

Frequent painful deployments force you to automate and improve the process.

Your development environment may be wonderful. Your test coverage may be high. But your code has to go live. If that’s an infrequent process of giant merges and close-your-eyes-and-hope code pushes you risk bugs. “Little and often” reduces risk and decreases pain.

The logical conclusion: continuous deployment.
