Well-written and engaging guide to debugging,
This review is from: Debug It!: Find, Repair, and Prevent Bugs in Your Code (Pragmatic Programmers) (Paperback)
This is a very well-written book about the process of debugging. It's easy to read without compromising on depth or quality. The real-world examples are both memorable and realistic, including examples of both success and failure in debugging (as well as the printer pixies). The treatment of the subject matter is broad as well as deep, and contains discussions on test-led development, continuous integration and automated testing, as well as giving examples of debugging, integration and testing tools for further investigation. The user-friendly asides and terminology (e.g. "heisenbugs") means that the concepts and examples really stick in your mind.
I will be recommending it to my colleagues, and attempting to implement as much as possible in my next project.
In-depth coverage of the subject, *and* printer pixies. WNTL?
