A Project Manager's View on Release Cycle Deployment

As it nears Halloween, some of these views are a bit dramatic and slightly scary, however, I've been staying up late with the developers to help ensure testing and night-time deployment goes smoothly. Having done it a few times now, here is how that process sometimes feel as a Project Manager. I'm sure the developer would have something interesting to say in return to these! 

We prepare with thorough testing in a controlled staging environment. 

 

Testing...testing...is this on?

 

Get ready...here is our well thought out and very organized release plan...

 

At the stroke of midnight, we start the release... Such a magical hour...

 

The moment I realize a fix is still misbehaving ON LIVE.
