I guess it was always going to be difficult to collect statistics on the early captured defects. Especially when a fair number of them are communicated verbally and/or form part of a manual activity.

Those potential issues that never get to the customer are wins for me, and I think this is something we should be proud of as software engineers and testers.

Software engineers are paid for fixing issues, and never - for absence of them.
And being proud - is not something what will pay your bill.

Not in my experience. Sounds like you need to experience better management.

This did make me think a bit though - we'll be applauded for getting stuff out the door on time even if there are a few minor issues that need correction, often inevitable in any software release. I'm going to say there is perhaps less appreciation for the boring developers whose software doesn't ever create any kind of fuss, who can easily accommodate upgrade requirements etc. Having said that, it is my mantle and I wear it well!

Oh, really?

How much did they pay you, say last month, for the software which you developed 5 years ago and which is working since then with no issues?

Ah, you probably never came across such software.
In hour experience.

Hey, I get paid the same whatever work there is to be done. It's just that by not being embroiled in old issues and having happy customers, you're more likely to be elevated and be able to work on new and bigger projects.

Measuring the number of defects where I work is fairly easy. Not so easy is to know how to compare those levels across projects, and how to measure technical debt.

I am paid to deliver quality software. They wouldn't have me here, where I currently am, if I didn't.

I am just saying that my experience is different. It happens.

Ironically, the very techniques talked about in this article apparently haven't been exercised for the recent forum update and one of the most important parts of this site, the SQL Code windows, still doesn't work correctly. They still double-space and delete leading spaces if you copy and paste from SSMS. They still come up with all sorts of wonky colorization if you make a trip through NotePad (for example) to preserve the spaced indentation. What happened to test and UAT?

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
