Music for Debugging: Biography of a Bug

Monday, June 16th, 2008

Klaus Schulze was one of my favorite electronic composers in 90s. Now I’m revisiting my past collection and recommend ”X” album featuring several musical biographies including Nietzsche. “X” here stands for 10th album not for “x” WinDbg command. Good for meditation during slow debugging sessions. All music is very sad and mystical. I even think about this title: “Musical Biography of a Bug“:

Patterns for Concurrent Programming on Vista

Monday, June 16th, 2008

This new book will be published later this year:

Concurrent Programming on Windows Vista: Architecture, Principles, and Patterns (Microsoft .NET Development Series)

Buy from Amazon

Although it is featured in Microsoft .NET Development Series I believe that it might be very interesting read for both unmanaged and managed code developers and escalation engineers. Understanding concurrency and having the ability to see its patterns is the crucial skill for crash dump analysis and debugging of complex software issues. I pre-ordered it myself and write a review once it is in print.
