This fully updated second edition includes 100+ pages of new material, including new chapters on Verifying Code, Predicting Errors, and Preventing Errors. Cutting-edge tools such as FindBUGS and AGITAR are explained, techniques from integrated environments like Jazz.net are highlighted, and all-new demos with ESC/Java and Spec#, Eclipse and Mozilla are included. This complete and pragmatic overview of debugging is authored by Andreas Zeller, the talented researcher who developed the GNU Data Display Debugger(DDD), a tool that over 250,000 professionals use to visualize the data structures of programs while they are running. Unlike other books on debugging, Zeller's text is product agnostic, appropriate for all programming languages and skill levels. Why Programs Fail explains best practices ranging from systematically tracking error reports, to observing symptoms, reproducing errors, and correcting defects. It covers a wide range of tools and techniques from hands-on observation to fully automated diagnoses, and also explores the author's innovative techniques for isolating minimal input to reproduce an error and for tracking cause and effect through a program. It even includes instructions on how to create automated debugging tools. The new edition of this award-winning productivity-booster is for any developer who has ever been frustrated by elusive bugs. Brand new chapters demonstrate cutting-edge debugging techniques and tools, enabling readers to put the latest time-saving developments to work for them. Learn by doing. New exercises and detailed examples focus on emerging tools, languages and environments, including AGITAR, FindBUGS, Python and Eclipse. The text includes exercises and extensive references for further study, and a companion website with source code for all examples and additional debugging resources.

As a small business owner, family man and tech pundit, Scott finds himself leading a compromised life. By day, he runs a successful security company and reports on the latest cyber breaches in the hopes of offering solace and security tips to millions of viewers. But by night, Scott begins to realize his worst fears are only a hack away as he falls prey to an invisible enemy. When a mysterious hacker begins to steal thousands from his bank account, go through his trash and rake over his social media identity; Scott stands to lose everything he worked so hard for. But his precarious situation only fortifies Scott's position as a cybersecurity expert and also as a harbinger for the fragile security we all cherish in this digital life. Amidst the backdrop of major breaches such as Target and Sony, Scott shares tips and best practices for all consumers concerning email scams, password protection and social media overload: Most importantly, Scott shares his own story of being hacked repeatedly and bow he has come to realize that the only thing as important as his own cybersecurity is that of his readers and viewers. Part cautionary tale and part cyber self-help guide, Hacked Again probes deep into the dark web for truths and surfaces to offer best practices and share stories from an expert who has lived as both an enforcer and a victim in the world of cybersecurity.
