comment Dealing with a developer continuously ignoring edge cases in his work
@Barry, I didn't say they won't. Checklists in this case sound, IMHO, like a remedy for symptoms of a problem, not to the problem itself. The problem being discipline and diligence in this case. When the problem is the complexity of a system that require emergency maintenance with a high degree of responsibility and stress involved, that results in a degraded level of attention to detail, then yes, checklists ftw(pilots, doctors, etc.) But that's more of a philosophical debate I guess, outside of the scope of this question.

@Thomas, perhaps you're right I maybe a bit too biased wanting to believe that :(

comment Dealing with a developer continuously ignoring edge cases in his work
Good idea, although I am curious as to how that could be viewed from devs perspective. I never actually came across this practice in my career as a developer, so it's kinda hard to gauge the reaction. Any insights there?

Thank you for your insight. Really appreciate it. You're quite right on all fronts here, although I am curious, if he is a great person but just lacks this something that makes great engineers great, how can I still put him to do other work and keep him in the organization, maybe moving to another team or something... Although I guess only I can answer that question :)
