The Night Watch

I was reminded today of one of my favorite articles ever. Someone was talking in Slack about how regression and integration tests should take, like, 10 minutes max. Just parallelize the CI tests in your CD workflow and everything will be good!

I pointed out that many of us write code that cannot be tested in CI/CD contexts because it needs to be tested against a $45k piece of hardware. And then said this was like Jesse Mickens' epic rant about the disconnect between user code folks and systems code folks.
