DevDelivery’s Second Rule of Development Process

Any process where key steps depend on humans executing perfectly is guaranteed to fail.

Humans make mistakes – it is what makes them human. Anything that has to be done right should be either

  • Automated
  • Reviewed
  • Structured so that mistakes are obvious and quickly found

If one of these are not built into your process, don’t blame the person who made the mistake that caused the deployment to fail – blame your process that did not catch/prevent that mistake.
