It's 2017 and people are STILL asking this question? Do you enjoy spinning up your application to test the entire thing just to ensure your small patch didn't break anything else? Are you confident you didn't miss anything, or as stevebriley mentions - are you happy for your customers to find obvious bugs?

FFS - Use CI and TEST IT!

Yes, Dale! I'm a tester and many people still think it's a great idea to hack together and get it live ASAP. Then having a meeting with the business and the PMs 2 days later wondering why it's broken!
