The best predictor of a component’s future behaviour

Annoyed. We found by coincidence a bug in our (beta) system. Possible blocking the operation if we go live without a fix. We need to verify our assumption. Damn another bug, I thought we found most of them already…….because our bug tracking system contains many entries.

Today I reread a section of Perfect Software and Other Illusions about Testing, by Jerry Weinberg. (p.118)

Early bug findings are the best predictor of a component’s future behaviour. Lots of bugs found quickly suggests there will be lots more bugs found in the long run.”

hmmm…..early bug findings………

I will do my best not to forget this lesson.
