How Bugs Are Really Solved

Originally posted on: number of bugs produced by developers are legion but why are advanced debugging skills still rare in the wild? How do you solve problems if you do not have the technical know how to to a full root cause analysis across all used tech stacks? Simple bugs are always reproducible in your development environment and can easily be found with visual debuggers in your favorite IDE. Things get harder if your application consistently crashes at customer sites. In that case often environmental problems are the root cause which mostly cannot be reproduced in
the lab. Either you install a debugger on production machines of your customers or you need to learn how to use memory dumps and analyze them back home. There are also many other tools for Windows troubleshooting available like Process Explorer, Process Monitor, Process Hacker, VMMap, … which help a lot to diagnose many issues without ever using a debugger. With some effort you can learn to use these tools and you are good to solve many problems you can encounter during development or on customer machines. Things get interesting if you get fatal sporadic issues...(Read whole news on source site)

Some thoughts on current trends

I’ve been thinking about some of the current trends and hyped terms/concepts lately. On one hand I’m convinced we’re coming out of the inflection point chaos that has consumed our industry over the past several years, and on the other hand any time things start to stabilize the hype-masters come out of the woodwork because there’s money to be made. This isn’t new – see my SOA, dollar signs and trust boundaries post from 2004… In this post I’m going to briefly talk about microservices, containers, and devops. What’s interesting about that 2004 post is that it is one of quite a number of posts I did
on service-oriented concepts, and most of my focus at the time was on “pure service-oriented” thinking – which never took off – and which is now known by the newly-trendy term “microservices”. In other words, this “new” microservices stuff is just the type of SOA that we should have been doing for the past decade. Oops. As always, when an old idea comes back around under a new name, we owe it to ourselves to ask whether there’s anything different this time that might make the idea more successful than it was last time? For example, it took us decades to get asynchronous programming to become mainstream. We tried...(Read whole news on source site)
