These days, I’m doing a lot of debugging and testing. It doesn’t feel very glamorous, but I know that it is extremely important, not only to the end user’s experience, but also to the integrity of your product. I found this quote recently: “Debugging is the process of testing, finding, and reducing bugs (errors) in computer programs. The first known computer bug was a real bug (an insect), stuck in the electronics.”
Cute – I always wondered where that phrase/word came from.
Just recently, I found a misspelled word on the footer of our program. It’s a pet peeve for me and I have submitted the updated file with the correct spelling. Your company website, your software product, and everything else projects an image about your company to the world. If you have an outdated website, but claim to have a really cool/great software product, I’m probably going to be a bit skeptical. There’s a saying that ‘image is everything.’ The substance of the product is important, but if I can’t get past the outdated website, it doesn’t matter how great the product is.
