When software runs awry, the readings for this week mention a few examples of costly programing mistakes. Find a major programming error from the last five years and briefly summarize the case and what happened. Include the name of the case in the title of the post and avoid one another student has already selected.
Thinking about your case and errors/glitches in general, who should be held responsible for defective software, corporate management, production managers, software engineers, or even the software user? Explain your reasoning. Are these errors just an example of the price society pays for using complex technology so no blame should be assigned? Explain. What steps can the software industry take to ensure the integrity of its software?
