Reposting from late last night, a recap of the Friday deploy controversy. Enjoy. 

A few footnotes (will correct when I'm at my desk):

* no harm meant to the original poster. eyebrow raised at the people I see liking and RTing who should know better. 🤨

* the phrase "deploys are the heartbeat of your system" comes from @rich_archbold and @IntercomEng

* if there is one takeaway you should remember above all, it's not about Friday deploys, it's about software ownership. Align your incentives so that the people who break the deploy are the people who feel the pain, and the rest will more or less fall into place. ✨Like magic✨
