"...I sincerely hope you’re not living in the Stone Age..."

Whether or not you agree with the entire article, for me, the statement above was the most important one. There is no excuse why any software development team does not have an automated build and deploy process.

There may be valid business reasons to deploy in the middle of the night, but there's no business reason to deploy by hand.

Also, I am assuming that the posting only reflects application source code and not database changes, which is a different beast in terms of deployments.
