Borland has come up with a thought-provoking list of “Top Ten Blunders” that can lead development teams to introduce unexpected defects into their applications. It’s a real-world list, albeit weighted a little too heavily to builds. While it’s obviously essential to build early and often, and to make sure that your builds are good, it’s only one of many steps in the application development life cycle. But then again, this “Top Ten” list was created by Borland’s Gauntlet build-automation product team, so I can see why it’s tilted that way.
Take a look at their list, and tell me what you think: What are the biggest app-dev development blunders that you’ve seen?
