Paradigm Envy

I read a lot in the past few years about Continuous Deployment, and I finally realized what about it seemed odd - I've spent most of my career working on systems that were not web-based, but installed individually at customer sites.  So all those wonderful ideas about rolling out new code on the fly just don't apply to me.

And I really envy those developers who can use it - you avoid all the hassles - customers who never upgrade; customers who want fixes in the new releases backported to their current release; customers who want you to fix the problem, but not change any code, since they have to test for 6 months before deploying code.

Maybe someday I'll get the chance to work on a system that CD will be applicable
