Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 65)

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

If Implementation Discourse focuses on objective technology specific discourse then Traces of Individuality pattern focuses on subjective elements in a software log and its messages. Here we mean some specific naming or tracing conventions either from an individual engineer habit or from some corporate coding standard. As an example of it consider a trace message from a catch statement:

"Surprise, surprise, should have never been caught"

More examples for this pattern will be added later.
