Recently a question popped up over on the CakePHP google group where someone had a problem sorting on a column of “registration numbers”. This was his table sorted order by “Reg No ASC“:
ID Name Reg No 1 Product A 1 2 Product B 123 3 Product C 2
How many bugs can you keep track of in your head at once? If you are anything like me, that number is somewhere in the single digit range. This is why issue tracking is a very important tool that every programmer should be using now. There are tons of free issue tracking programs like Mantis, Bugzilla, or even web based applications like Lighthouseapp. There is no excuse to put it off any longer if you aren’t already doing it.
