About “Phone on Fire”

From the back cover:

If I Only Changed the Software, Why is the Phone on Fire?” is a groundbreaking resource that provides engineers with real-world debugging scenarios presented as “technical mysteries.” Readers follow along with the trials of an engineering team faced with common (and not so common) bugs which, if left unresolved, could result in expensive and catastrophic consequences. The besieged programmers must race to discover the origins of these dilemmas by unraveling strange and unexpected symptoms, from a phone catching fire to a total assembly line failure.

Each chapter provides a new mystery based on a real-life engineering disaster, highlighting numerous examples of practical debugging methods with progressive levels of sophistication, emphasizing pragmatic solutions designed to help engineers foresee and ultimately avoid potential side effects and setbacks.

The final chapter, a summary of the smart debugging techniques introduced throughout the book, provides a handy quick reference to help solve future problems.
