I Saw An Extremely Subtle Bug Today…

I Saw An Extremely Subtle Bug Today And I Just Have To Tell Someone | Kalzumeus Software.

I don’t know about you but I love a good bug-hunting story. This is the best one I’ve read in some time. The author goes into extreme detail to ensure we’ve got enough context to problem solve with him and I really appreciated it as a good read (even though it was based on Rails and not everything made complete sense).

Reading stories like this is really valuable to me because of two things:

  1. You follow someone else’s thought process and bug tracking process start to finish
  2. The solution often helps you out at some point down the line

If you’ve got a few minutes definitely check it out, if not, Instapaper that thing for a rainy day.
