Deployment Driven Development

In Peter Marcu's Blog he talks about this ( and it something that I feel needs promoting more.

In my roll I often have to deploy new components or systems that have not considered how they will be deployed. In a lot of cases the development teams pick a new technology (usually from Microsoft) because it solves a development issue but this then creates a whole new deployment problem.

One example I came across recently was SQL Reporting Services, there doesn't seem to be any sensible way of deploying this. I have written a command line program to do this which I hope to share here soon.
