Debug it - an essential guide to the dark art of debugging,
This review is from: Debug It!: Find, Repair, and Prevent Bugs in Your Code (Pragmatic Programmers) (Paperback)
Debug it- is not just your typical book of algorithms and excerpts of programming guides and reference material, it gives essential insights into the mental processes that need to be captured and employed when tracking down problems in complex software.
The author does this by setting out simple strategies and mindsets that when applied will lead you to not only find the bug, but shows you the correct way to fix, test and make sure it never happens again.
Preliminary chapters focus on preventive techniques and good software engineering methodology to prevent bugs happening again.
Later chapters cover specific methods and examples
In summary this book is ideal for all levels of coders as well as those responsible for the management of quality assured software.
