What exactly were the changes...

posted on: Wednesday, May 29, 2013 by: jhildeman

DEV: Can you approve the code changes so we can include them in the release? We corrected an error that was causing your transactions not to load. blah, blah, blah... You ran them in TEST. yada, yada, yada...Here is the output of the testing. You can review the results in the app in TEST. Is there anything else you need?

Cust: Can you tell me **exactly** what the code changes were?

DEV: Well...we changed the type of variable to match a shared function that had changed since the last release. Here is the code change.

Dim AcctID As String = ""

Dim AcctID As Integer = 0

Cust: With my limited IT exposure, I'm afraid the description you provided doesn't help me that much. I am hoping you might be able to walk me through what the changes are exactly. I just want to understand the change a little better and any potential risk this might include.

DEV: Sigh... {in George Kastanza voice} Chapter one. In order to manage risk we must first understand risk. How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk and what makes it so risky?
