Why Isn’t Debugging Treated as a First-Class Activity? (Robert O’Callahan) — Another of my theories is that many developers have abandoned interactive debuggers because they’re a very poor fit for many debugging problems (e.g., multiprocess, time-sensitive, and remote workloads—especially cloud and mobile applications). Debugging isn’t really taught at schools, either. It’s an odd forensic science. What are your favourite debugging tutorials, papers, or books? Let me know: @gnat.
