The production environment for the developer

The development platform is the production environment for the job of creating software. / Michael T. Nygard

When you work with many customers you start to collect your personal database about the best and worst practices that you see and how much they are spreaded.

A thing that is very common is that development or IT related activities are treated like second class citizens in the company. Low end laptops (some with traditional HDD and not SSD!), low budget for testing or QA environment. I can’t explain why this is happening… I suppose it’s a cultural issue. Let’s look at an analogy. Suppose your company CRM went down so people from the selling department couldn’t do their job. That would be at least a severity 2 outage!

So I couldn’t agree more with Nygard: treat IT tools as production because it really is production!
