If you aren't testing in prod you aren't testing in 💥reality💥 -- just a weak dime store knockoff. Then you light the fuse and walk away with your fingers crossed.

Test in prod. Please.

Not testing in prod is like not trying on your wedding dress because it looks great on your paper doll.

Not testing in prod is like buying a car because you watched the second hand dealer start it up over facetime, no problem.

Not testing in prod is like not trying on your wedding dress because it fit your mom just *great* thirty years ago.

Not testing in prod is like taking whatever medication the doctor gave the person ahead of you in line.

Not testing in prod is like not practicing with the full orchestra because your solo sounded fine at home.
