A client went live yesterday with a new version (1.1.5) of their software. Whilst 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 had been tested, they had never gone live. This morning, urgent phone calls – \”we cannot change items in the database, 3 users have got problems\”.
After a hours frenetic activity it turns out there was a bug in 1.1.2 (installed nearly 3 months ago), that had lain in wait for us.
Honestly, what are the chances of a 3 month old bug being found within 1 hour by three different people the day after another new version goes in?
