Improve iteration time on implementing jobs

Hey there,

I am using dbx to create Databricks tasks and deploy the job. I find it not ideal since the iteration circles are sometimes a bit long when I have to wait for a job with several tasks to complete and see where it failed.

I am already trying some things to improve my iteration circles such as:

* using pools

* only deploying and running tasks that fail (exclude the others from the deployment)

* testing code snippets in Databricks notebooks or locally

Do you have any additional ideas on how to improve the iteration of jobs? I do not find that quite ideal and a bit cumbersome. I worked once with VCR for playtests and found that very nice. Does there exist something similar for Databricks jobs?
