Working with software means working with bugs. Bugs in software, bugs in hardware; bugs in Open Source code, bugs in proprietary code. If software is eating the world, bugs might end up taking the first bite.
We will present a few typical bugs, some of them famous, some of them infamous (including bugs that actually killed people). Since one can never be too well-prepared to fend off the next infestation, we will give tools, tips, and best practices to fix bugs in Open Source software. We will give real world examples of Really Mysterious Bugs (sometimes nicknamed "Heisenbugs" because they tend to disappear when you try to observe them), and how they were fixed, in Node.js, Docker, and the Linux Kernel.Survey this Session
