The head of performance at a prominent Australian software testing company has expressed surprise that a more graceful failover of the census site was not planned, given the size of the task at hand.
While major software development project problems are often the stuff of headlines, it seems they are more the rule than the exception - and we are getting worse at them.
The current desire of many organisations to accelerate software development projects has led to an unprecedented level of interest in the Agile software development methodology. But while Agile has dramatically shortened the rollout cycles for new projects, project managers have been warned that it in no way reduces the need for independent software testing.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
