And I'm saying that the things I listed are good ways to get quality while not having QA environments and QA steps in the process.
I also don't know where you get the notion that all debugging has to be done in production. If one can do it there, great. But if not, developers still have machines. He's pretty clearly against things like QA and pre-prod environments, not developers running the code they're working on.
So it seems to me you're mainly upset at things that I don't see in his article.
