Playlist for the Big Release

Reading time: < 1 min

Have you ever had to release a new product when you knew that it wasn't fully ready? Not the "not perfect" but "you must be out of your mind" ready. It's not the best feeling in the world. You do everything in your power and try to stay optimistic while planning for the dreadful release. But most importantly, you plan everything to the smallest detail: release steps, monitoring, rollback steps, etc. You even build a situational music playlist that you are going to listen to during the release. Or at least that's what one of the teams that I know did. True story!
