Product description

Amazon Review

Writing Solid Code is one of the best books for developing a proactive attitude towards electronic entomology. Any programmer worth their silicon knows that it is wiser to invest time preventing bugs from hatching than to try to exterminate them afterwards. Follow Maguire's advice, and your testers, supervisors and customers will love you. --Jake Bond


Written by a former Microsoft developer, this book takes on the problem of bugs by examining the development process and the places where developers typically make mistakes. The author provides practical solutions for detecting mistakes and examples of how bugs are caught at Microsoft. More advanced sections talk in detail about stepping through code to find programming errors and using the C run-in library as an ally against bugs. This book is of special interest to readers who have bought "Programming Windows", "Microsoft Guide to C++ Programming", "Microsoft C Run-Time Library Reference" or "Code Complete".
