Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a relatively short book, at around 200 pages, but it’s jam-packed with good advice.

The book presents 66 specific tips for debugging systems, covering everything from high level problem solving strategies and general development practices, to specific techniques for investigating, and more importantly avoiding, various types of bug.

The author clearly has a huge wealth of experience, and he has managed to share that experience in a very effective way.

If you’re a seasoned developer, you will probably be familiar with many of techniques presented in this book, but it’s useful to see them explicitly listed, and you’re sure to learn something new (I’ve been an integration engineer for 27+ years, working on large complex systems, and I certainly picked up a few new techniques). The book also mentions a number of useful open source projects, many of which may be new to you.

If you’re a new developer, the book will bootstrap your knowledge, teaching you techniques that the most developers take years to learn.

On this basis of this book, I’ve ordered some of the authors previous publications, and I look forward to reading those too.

Highly recommended.
