Discussion on: What are the worst nightmares for devs? 🎃

Week three as a junior dev I was given a task to clean up s3 buckets that hadn't been touched in years and accidentally deleted one that looked empty but had a CNAME redirect in it and took down production. The scramble to figure out what happened and the stress of what that might have meant if one of the senior devs didn't figure it out fast enough still gives me chills.

@ben maybe we should have a sad reaction on comments.
This comment touched me, a day can't get worse.

Oh gosh, the worst possible nightmare! Worse than accidentally committing secret keys and sensitive files to repo 💀
