SE-Radio Episode 280: Gerald Weinberg on Bugs Errors and Software Quality

Filed in Episodes by on January 24, 2017 3 Comments

gerald-weinberg-100x125Marcus Blankenship talks with Gerald Weinberg about software errors, the fallacy of perfection, how languages and process can reduce errors, and the attitude great programmers have about their work.  Gerald’s new book, Errors: Bugs, Boo-boos, and Blunders, focuses on why programmers make errors, how teams can improve their software, and how management should think of and discuss errors.  We learn why all programs are perfect (for something), quality can be judged only by the end user of the software, and computers act as “error amplifiers” for our own human imperfections.
