TIFU by deploying not one, but two major releases to production at 5pm on a Friday. I trusted my testers, so one of the applications had a major bug in it. I just worked through a child's surprise party. hope the testers are having a lovely evening with their loved ones.

    We have a golden rule : "Never deploy on a Friday."

    Reality is we deploy every time a feature is ready, multiple times daily.

    There is no reason to take away time from spending the little we have with our families, doesn't matter if the confidence of said change is 100%.

    Even our Exco. team plays by this rule.

    I know it doesn't help now, but this debacle might be enough ammunition for you to get this rule implemented.
