Let's Save The Titanic - Louise Gibbs

Description:

The Titanic sank in 1912 killing over 1500 passengers and crew. This disaster was the result of a series of defects that existed in the ships design, procedures in place designed to protect the passengers and crew, and the environment that the ship existed in.

Let's imagine that we are a member of the ship's crew. We have found some defects that we believe to be critical. What are we going to do about it?

In this talk, we are going to discuss what a bug is, and explore the idea that bugs do not cause failures, but they do increase the risk of failure.
