Her first bug report

I remember the first time my daughter said “dada”, which was also her first word (though I think my wife disagrees).

And there’s another important milestone for Jenna – her first bug report 🙂

She came up to my office, complaining about a problem on the Bella Sara web site. At the time I was nostril-deep in Jira issue hell, so I told her I would be happy to look at it, just as soon as she filed a bug report. After 25 years I’ve perfected many techniques for blowing off pesky users.

A few minutes later she tapped me on the shoulder and handed over her first bug report:

Jenna's first bug report

Nice, step-by-step instructions with details required to reproduce it. I think there’s a potential career in QA.

    I’m impressed! Were you able to fix it?

    The stuttering seems to be caused by her using an older Mac to access the site.

    The second problem magically resolved itself. Aren’t those just the best bugs? 🙂

    Wait, Jenna says it was a problem with her not having the caps-lock key down (I guess the horse code letters are all upper-case). So the second problem was between the keyboard and the chair.

    That was a pretthy confusing bug. You did a good job to tell what you did – all those steps – untill you were sure the program would not work.
    Is it fixed now? Did you get the two problems fixed? Did you get the Bara Sella program tow ork.??

    I remember seeing you in Lucky’s (when it was still Lucky’s) and she was in an infant carrier. Time flies.

    Came across this while looking for something else. Adorable story. So, 12 years on, is she interested in a STEM career?
