" The Case of the Irate Customer: Debugging Other People's Code, Fast" follows a fictional team as they tackle a difficult bug. As the team solves the "mystery" of the bug, readers are party to the thoughts, code and working processes of the characters. The fictional bug in this chapter actually mirrors a high-profile bug that plagued researchers in real life.
This new book manages the unthinkable -- it conveys crucial technical information to engineers without boring them to tears! In this unique reference, expert embedded designer Lisa Simone provides the solutions to typical embedded software debugging problems from a fresh new perspective. She introduces a team of engineers who readers will recognize from their own workplaces, and then confronts them with real-world debugging scenarios of progressive complexity, drawing the reader into the "mysteries" with their new fictional colleagues, and guiding them step-by-step toward successful solutions.
