Playlist for the Big Release

Release mixtape.

Have you ever had to release a new product when you knew 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 you will listen to during the release. Or at least that's what one of the teams I know did. True story!
