The CIO's Guide to CI/CD

Here's a preview of what's inside:

What we also see is when deadlines start to loom, the first thing people stop doing is writing tests, or turn the tests off because they're slowing us down [...] However, once you do that, you immediately get into a place where your tests start to atrophy and then turning them back on is of course a challenge. [...] I think my biggest advice is, if you can get away with it, don't ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever turn off a test."
