About the session

It seems such a small thing: how to deal with defects? Why is this still such a major headache everywhere?

So much time wasted: triage meetings, talking about and prioritising defects, stretching the lifetime of a bug to Methuselahain lengths, growing longer and longer backlogs of defects.

A ‘zero bug’ policy can seem impossible, but you, too, can escape that long weekly triage meeting. And it is easier than you think.

Participant takeaways:

  • How a superficially sensible system of prioritising defects individually leads to an unmanageable backlog
  • A strategy to move gradually to a zero-bug policy from different starting points
  • A simple way to stop the number of bugs growing without spending more time on fixing bugs
  • A proven and highly effective way to get rid of the many small defects that never get priority
  • A minimalistic way to be compliant on defect management
