We all enjoy to hear a good success story, but in the software development industry the life of a developer is also made up of disasters, disappointments and frustrations. Have you ever deleted all the data in production? Or maybe you just run out of disk space and your software failed miserably! How about crashing your server with a bug that you introduced in the latest release? We can learn with each others with the mistakes we made. Come to this BOF and share with us your most horrific development story and what did you do to fix it.
