With this new ebook programmers of all levels get on the fast track with over 23 years worth of programming experience in bug hunting and problem solving from the mentor Martyr2 on Dream.In.Code. He shows you how to first identify the true nature of a problem in a piece of software, not just its symptoms, and shows you where bugs are often found in applications of all types. He provides some code techniques for locating bugs so you can eliminate them using small code examples in such a way that the ideas are easily transferable between any language.
However, once you find a bug you may not have the ability to actually fix it. So in Chapter 4 he dives into talking about how to deal with tool and other system limitations and how to reduce the risk these limitations may impose on you for fixing problems. Martyr2 then shares some pointers on how to go about dealing with superiors who might not be coders themselves. How to get them on board with securing resources so that you can push past previous limitations.
In later chapters Martyr2 discusses the idea of building a framework to finding future bugs easier as well as discusses how the ultimate tool to preventing bugs is simplicity. By knowing how to identify bugs, how to develop solutions that fix them instead of their symptoms, communicating with those who have the resources you need and how to prevent future bugs you will gain the knowledge you need to not only pump out code but truly solve problems in software.
The skills you will acquire in this book is great for anyone who wishes to get a leg up on their competition in the computer programming job market…whether you are right out of school or changing careers. It is also helpful for anyone wanting to just increase their overall competency in software development or wanting to change their thinking about problem solving in computer programs.
