10 Trading Glitches That Stopped The Markets
Wall Street & Technology provide a list of 10 notable software glitches that caused market mayhem. Although a very interesting read as to how to loose a substantial amount of money, it does beg the question as to what lessons have been learn in software engineering from each of these incidents. I’m guessing that there are at least a minimum of two categories that these glitches fall into; failure to understand all edge cases prior to software implementation and deployment, and buggy software. In the case of buggy software, I’d be curious to know which of the 10 glitches leveraged BDD from story (requirement) to code, I’m also curious the more I think about these issues to know if the classic software measurements were also part of the problem (code coverage etc) is providing a false sense of security.
