I Learn Again to Use the Release Checklist
Every time I release an update of Poker Copilot, I open up a checklist with each thing I must do. Over the last few years, the list has been refined, shortened, automated where possible, made clearer. I was partly motivated by the excellent The Checklist Manifesto.
Once or twice, I’ve not bothered following the checklist, and things have gone wrong. By now I should have learnt. But with the most recent update to Poker Copilot 3.26, I worked through half the list, and did the rest from memory. I forgot to perform this important step:
Step 6: Manually perform full download and install.
I didn’t do that step, and therefore didn’t realise for two days that I had a broken full downloader on the site. Sigh. I’m reminded again, that the purpose of the checklist is to avoid these situations that tend to be rather poor for sales.
