I need to accept bugs as part of the process, just like I needed to see that exception handling is part of the code. Neither should be treated with condescension because they don’t take it well and the revenge will hurt. There are always bugs to be fixed and exceptions to be handled. Treated right both will help improve …. the development process and the code. Treated like a step-child bugs and exceptions are a developer’s nightmare.
PS: I found the evil big mean one that caused some evil stuff weeks ago. And this time I stepped on it for good! It will NEVER be back. I am in control now 🙂
