Bug Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

Quickie Sessions

The war against bugs is never-ending.

In development, we have our IDE and debugger, and we can find and fix bugs quickly. But in production, we typically only have log files to rely on, incomplete ones at that. This causes us great difficulties in identifying problems or even reproducing them.
