Production releases – 0.875 per month

I’m coming up to four years with ThoughtWorks next month, and I’m in a reflective mood.  I did a quick count – since joining ThoughtWorks I’ve been involved in the delivery of forty-two (42) application releases into production (give or take one or two).  Some have been fun, some have been hard, some have been terrifying, others have been so regular and predictable that hardly anyone notices.

I’m sure that’s no great feat amongst my peers – but the reason it’s so astonishing to me is that in the five years prior to joining ThoughtWorks I had written lots of code (some great, some not so great), but not one line had ever made it to production.

Thank you ThoughtWorks.
