The old adage remains true. You don't really have backups until you tried to restore them and made sure they work.

@hisham_hm Also, real developers don't have backups. They just upload their code to some FTP and let the world make copies.

(Well, not FTP anymore, we upload to Github/Evernote/GoogleDocs/whatever...)

@maloki exactly. Unfortunately, "we have backups but they didn't work" is just as common as "we didn't have backups", if not more

@hisham_hm fortunately, my coworkers give me plenty of opportunities to restore from backups 👿
