Write tests. Not too many. Mostly integration. – kentcdodds
Nice short summary of Kent Dodds' approach to testing, which I mostly agree with :)

Netflix release new code to production before completing tests
Interesting -- I hadn't heard of this being an official practise anywhere before (although we actually did it ourselves this week)...
If a build has made it [past the 'integration test' phase], it is ready to be deployed to one or more internal environments for user-acceptance testing. Users could be UI developers implementing a new feature using the API, UI Testers performing end-to-end testing or automated UI regression tests. As far as possible, we strive to not have user-acceptance tests be a gating factor for our deployments. We do this by wrapping functionality in Feature Flags so that it is turned off in Production while testing is happening in other environments.
