Don\'t let testing get in the road of a launch party
How many launch parties for products have you seen while testing is still happening ?
Re: Don\'t let testing get in the road of a launch party
I once went to a launch party that occurred before the product was even released to testing. The company's time estimates were way off and although we were told we'd have the product late September, we got it late January. However, they had a very ambitious release party that had to be planned months in advance (they took us out of town). Development had been working hard, QA hadn't simply because they hadn't given us anything yet. It was pretty funny getting the big speech at the QA table about all the hard work we put into the project when we hadn't even seen it yet! Release parties never happened again at that company after that (any that occurred before did occur after QA was done and master had been shipped).
