Instead of getting ap working sooner, lets work on this Easter egg. Glad to see Tesla has their priorities straight.
Maybe it was a different team that had some downtime. Maybe things like this help the morale of the teams and actually motivate them. Hard to believe you'd hear "Let's put AP on hold for a few days and work on Easter eggs" in a staff meeting.
Development resource allocation aside, every software change requires extensive unit/functional, integration, regression testing at a minimum. If I recall, when the 85D was first released, there was a bug that caused the car to shut down if a certain setting was enabled. Then there was a recent bug which caused low speed shuttering in dual motor cars. It looks like Tesla does not treat the software development/testing as seriously as they need too, especially if they have time to play around with easter eggs. You also have to question if easter eggs are even appropriate in software that controls a 2 ton car. Would it be appropriate if Boeing developers put in easter eggs in the aeronautical software of the 777 to improve morale?
