Tuesday Notes – Never assume that a bug has already been reported – 15/10/2019

Hey everyone,  

Here’s a few quick points on what I've been up to:

Podcast I'm listening to..

Jocko Podcast - Jocko Willink (American retired United States Navy SEAL) and Echo Charles discipline and leadership... extensively.

What I'm reading

Quote from the book

From a prescription written long ago in our ancestral genetic code, the practice of natural biphasic sleep, and a healthy diet, appear to be the keys to a long-sustained life

Never assume that a bug has already been reported

If you have seen a bug, check your bug tracking system whether it has been reported or not (If you have a long list of bugs, just report it, the defect triage team will handle the rest). Maybe a bug has already been reported but there was a weak case to fix it, maybe a client found the issue, your new report might improve its chances of getting fixed.

I have spoken to a few people in other companies with this happening. On one extreme case I heard, there was a critical bug found by an internal user that thought it was a minor issue and assumed that someone has already reported the bug. The day after, a client found that bug. Talk about timing 😲

Happy Testing!
