Discussion on: Projection Building Blocks: What you'll need to build projections

None of the mentioned technics give me 100% protection(Of course you might say: there is no such thing). They are reducing the likelihood, but not completely.
When there are lots of moving parts: ui, domain, projection code, projection storage, it is really easy to miss something. For example, we have all of these: CI/CD, unit testing, integration testing, manual testing, several levels of UAT and yet, I was once in a situation deploying 4 times a day into prod, just because of those tiny missing things which were breaking the whole system. It is possible, I've seen it, I was fixing it. Luckily the users of this software were just next to. Even though they were not happy with such interruptions.

But currently we are in a difficult situation - all the users are somewhere and there is no way patching it right away.

Where were we? Right. Would you be happy as a client of a banking system, if a tiny mistake in my account blocks your account as well?
See where I am heading?
