I am not an organised person, I like clutter and chaos and last minute, seat of your pants working, I like putting stuff live and seeing what happens, I like it when things go wrong and problems need to be solved.

Somehow in recent times we have moved towards being unable to do anything without plans and committees and time, lots and lots of time.

Everything has to be planned and agreed and discussed and agreed and planned again, exit strategies have to be in place, risks have to be assessed, forms have to be filled out, testing has to be done from end to end, releases have to be synchronised and out of hours and tested before the users are allowed at them again.

I've just had a request for a new field to be added to a mobile app, data to be captured and fed back into the DB of a office system. No schema changes needed, just a couple of lines of config, the new field added to a form, a little bit of validation, and an extra couple of lines of code to send the data captured back.

An hour of work, stick it on a test system get the bloke who requested it to test, he's happy, can we put it live?

Well that would require me to edit a small procedure, run it, the file DLLs then get put on the server and the mobile apps will download them when they next connect.

We've been releasing to this mobile system like this for 7 years or so.

So, can we release it to Live?

Yes.

There is a release window scheduled for September.


Don't tell anyone, but it might just find its way out by accident.



Life is already far too sanitised, takes all the fun out of everything.
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
