      There's no point in delivering a product to market if you can't sustain the pace once it becomes a smashing success.

      By working overtime, you'll accumulate technical debt, and you'll be behind the eight ball indefinitely. We've all seen this numerous times. If you're (i.e. the company) willing to accept mediocre code now, the pressure will be the same for future releases.

      There are plenty of examples of companies that couldn't deliver version 2.0, because version 1.0 was a house of cards. It would be much better to deliver a quality product with fewer features, or the same features a bit later, than deliver what you think is a minimum feature set on a codebase that will be difficult to build upon.

      Here be dragons.
