Practical strategies for debugging
This is a follow up to Brian MacDonald’s post on Debugging for Beginners. I read Brian’s post avidly, as I am always keen to take a look at different approaches to finding those elusive problems that plague all programmers (even those with decades of experience) from time to time.
Anyhow, I have to admit that I was a little bit…disappointed. You see, Brian writes in a wonderful, readable way, about topics that concern all programmers, whatever their background. But, I found that the general focus of his article was less on how to debug (even at a higher, theoretical level), and more about how to make fewer mistakes.
