The Lost Art of Debugging – 10 Resources

Debugging is as much of an art as it is a science. There are lots of great tools to help developers debug their code. I believe developers, including myself, have learned to depend too much on these tools instead of thinking through the problem. There is a common thread across all programming languages and development platforms. That thread is the way that you approach, identify, and tackle a bug. To help develop an environment of good debugging practices, I have decided to write a series of blogs on technology agnostic debugging techniques.

My first post about The Lost Art of Debugging is a blogroll of resources, both electronic and print, that developers should read to help develop good debugging techniques. Here are ten great resources on the methodology of debugging.

Web Sites & Blogs

Books

Do you have other debugging resources that you depend on? Have you seen a great article on debugging? Do you have a debugging horror story you would like to share? Leave me a comment with your book, web site, or tale of woe.
