Meaning – A bug is a very broad term, used to denote a defect in hardware or software. When an organisation develops a software, the initial version of the release often contains a few imperfections, or certain situations that arise in the usage of the software, where the released version either crashes or freezes. These defects are known as bugs, and the developers are tasked with making sure that they keep combing through the source code, identify, squash the bugs and release newer versions to the users.
Organisations also resort to beta tests wherein the consumers are invited to test the releases and help identify bugs in the software.
Example of usage – “The developer was tasked with figuring out and solving a bug that was reported by everyone in the beta test.”
