Friday Deploy Freezes Are Like Murdering Puppies – Charity.wtf
How much time does your company waste, between engineers:
Anxiety related to deploys is the single largest source of technical debt in many, many orgs. Any problems you encounter will be MUCH harder to debug on Monday in a muddled blob of changes than they would have been just shipping crisply, one at a time on Friday. Devote some real engineering hours to your deploy pipeline, and some real creativity to your processes, and someday you too can lift the Friday ban on deploys and relieve your oncall from burnout and increase your overall velocity and productivity.
