We could set a step-by-step procedure for a developer to follow to make sure we run our tests before we deploy manually, but sometimes this can get in the way of deployment, especially under high-pressure deadlines in the middle of the night. There are better methods.
The core idea is that we want to deploy our application only after all of our tests have run and passed (sometimes known as "going green"). There are many ways we can do this. Mentioned above, we can handle it through humans, but that can become tedious and we're pretty ...
