If you want real “Production is on fire” experience you may also use start removing files and directories on a running production environment. Especially it might be more fun if there is no version control system behind. Simple type “rm -rf” (make sure to have f option – which stands for force) and select a file to delete. Examples of such files might be anything in /etc/ directory or Magento related files which aren’t part of GIT.
Disclaimer: All “Pro” tips are examples of practices which should be avoided when deploying to a production environment. It is listed for fun, however you should always remember to automate as much as time allows it.
