More on Continuous Deployment

No change is going to make it onto our internal site without passing a full battery of unit tests. And nothing is going to go on from our internal site to production without passing an additional set of Selenium tests. Does this mean we're never going to introduce bugs to our live site? Of course not - but we're going to keep the number of bugs to hit the live site to a minimum, and we've made it easy and fast to get bug fixes live as well.
