167 merges

Smaller releases are safer releases

Here’s a thing that happened this week:

  • Production incident due to a bug in a release.
  • Release was rolled back.
  • Can’t reproduce the failure in the test environment.
  • Don’t know what caused the bug.
  • The release contained 167 individual PR merges.
  • Nobody knows which of those 167 PRs broke things.

Smaller releases are safer releases.
