Discussion on: Do you use caching in your CI/CD pipelines?

I personally set up caching only for pipelines that take “too long” (more than 15 minutes).

I think it’s mostly because the next feature is always more important then tweaking the CI/CD.

But thinking about it, this feels like “skipping TDD”. In the end the benefits in terms of cost savings and developer productivity seems the outweighs the couple of minutes it takes to set up caching and other improvements (I’m looking at you Dockerfile 👀)
