wow, just wow, might move this to rant, But seriously. New changes are in DEV and Training Areas. Boss wants it moved to prod right now. Ok, It has been thru QA on both environments weeks ago. It is good to go. All Documentation is in order everything is ready. Looking in TFS for changes from Developer 1 (D1) D1 has not checked in their code? what the elephant?
Discussion with D1. Oh I always do that. I never check in until after it is in production. That way I can roll back easier. I don't have to even think about things? huh? What? head shake.
So you are meaning to tell me you haven't for years checked in your code and because you were 'out' yesterday afternoon they boss gets to be told that no one else can do this because we don't know where you put the code? Have a nice conversation with the boss about that one.
I almost feel sorry for D1.
To err is human to really mess up you need a computer
Wow, that sucks. Although, I don't know if I'd blame D1 or the lead/manager. When I've played at lead/manager, in the past, I wouldn't let D1 reach that point. To me, sounds like either D1 doesn't have enough training, to know how to use TFS properly, or the team's approach to source code management is a bit too laissez faire.
The fundamental problem here is the fact that you are deploying to dev/training directly from dev machines, instead of from source control. The process is broken, and this developer's approach is just one of its symptoms.
