Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

The Debug and Release Check Technique

Assertions are excellent at catching bugs during development. However, some checks need to be performed at runtime for production code as well. A good way to wrap the two is this:

if (condition_failed)
   return error_code
At debug time, this forces the debugger to stop at the error point. In production, the program has a chance to recover since it doesn't accept an invalid value blindly.
