Application development has evolved significantly in recent years. Gone are the days of siloed application developer and IT teams who require months to deploy new infrastructure and have limited options for scaling and iterating on their deployments over time.

I think the single most profound struggle and opportunity in application security is the relationship between developers and security.

By now, the concept of experimentation in software development is fairly well known. Most development teams understand at a high level the benefits that can be achieved through experimentation.
