Debugging, like programming, is a technical skill that anyone can learn. However debugging well, like programming well, is as much art as it is skill.
In my long career as a software developer and architect, I have had to debug a lot of things. And it continually amazes me, when working with others on a problem, how some people just get lost trying to get at the root of a problem. What seem like obvious next steps elude them.
So this blog is about helping people see the forest for the trees. It shares what I have learned over many years, and many problems, hopefully demonstrating the core concepts of effective debugging in whatever language or problem domain you happen to be in.
May it help you solve that next challenge just a little bit faster.
