"zero bugs reported on the front-end"

This is sign you didn't do enough testing, or were overly narrow in the definition of a bug. I point this out since it casts your other sound advice in a bad light. It's one of those advice red flags.

There will be some probably, but my thought is that the outcome of the project was very positive compare to previous product tracks.

On the other hand having a bug-free project is very possible indeed. I remember the first software system for distributing luggage at airports — it threw its first bug after the third year.

What helped in our case was having many iterations and throughly testing the edge cases. Also, the project was relatively small, but bumpy, though.
