Today I came across a nice post on 'Bug Driven Development'. This is something that most developers have experienced at one point in their career. I know I have. Kudos to Phil for coming up with this great name (if did not coin this term, then kudos to whom ever did).
I agree with the post when he says it sad that in today's age of technology that development shops and managers (he does not call out managers directly, but I do) still think that fixing bugs is 'software development'
I was once at a company that thought that it was cheaper to hire more QA staff then it was to fix the development process. This particular company had 2 QA for every 1 developer. And the product still spun in the 'QA' cycle for up to 6 months at one point..... Sad thing is, upper management thought this was just fine....:)
Great post Phil, if only 'People in charge' would read this and understand your point...
Till next time
