Secret Sales: When you finish a feature, can you release it with confidence right away, or do you have to wait days or weeks to find out what users think? Secretsales uses continuous delivery to get super-rapid feedback on all the features we build for our busy, successful online shopping site. In addition, we are a team of generalising specialists, ready at the drop of a hat to refine an algorithm, write a tricky integration test, tune a SQL query, or discuss feature nuances with a product manager. We hold regular retrospectives to improve our working environment and lightning talks to share cool ideas whether work-related or not.
