Sena Heydari

Old Fashioned

  • Labor is still the most costly aspect of any product. You're paying people to use their brain as efficiently as possible. If you get to the last day of the sprint and nobody in Ops has an environment ready for you to deploy, or even to test on, then [the company] are just wasting money, literally burning money every minute.
  • Nobody wants to be on call, nobody wants stuff breaking in the middle of the night, nobody wants to be out of the loop on the product they are responsible for because ultimately it just makes everybody's life suck more.
