Scientific debugging [Oct. 24th, 2007|12:02 pm]
Beemer
As I was working on figuring out why a webpage wouldn't layout properly yesterday, it occurred to me that debugging problems is one of the purest expressions of the scientific method around. I think kids should learn that in school: if you understand how science works, you'll be able to make things work when they break.

Does it disturb you that good debugging techniques are often indistinguishable from voodoo? :-)
