You Removed the Fail Safe! EVERYTHING’s BREAKING!

EVERYTHING IS BREAKING! There are ERRORS EVERYWHERE! Whatever this function is supposed to do, it is not doing it correctly. Literally you go from one seemingly small error to about fifty or a hundred. YOU DON’T KNOW! You’re just scrolling through the debug logger and panicking. Like a lot! What do you do?

  1. Revert back and start over HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!
  2. Revert commit but investigate ReIterateThroughDataBaseGreaterThanZero(X,YIn,Params)
  3. Try and fix all of the errors
  4. Try and run the code again, maybe it’s a fluke

B McGraw has lived a long and successful professional life as a software developer and researcher. After completing his BS in spaghetti coding at the department of the dark arts at Cranberry Lemon in 2005 he wasted no time in getting a masters in debugging by print statement in 2008 and obtaining his PhD with research in screwing up repos on Github in 2014. That's when he could finally get paid. In 2018 B McGraw finally made the big step of defaulting on his student loans and began advancing his career by adding his name on other people's research papers after finding one grammatical mistake in the Peer Review process.
