Reading tea leaves – Danny Thorpe

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/05/12

A short while ago, [WayBack] Danny Thorpe posted an answer about multithreading issues on [WayBack] which reminded me a lot about a BorCon session he did.
That session is called [WayBack] “Reading Tea Leaves: The Fine Art of Debugging“, it is still very current (a lot of it is not Delphi specific at all: it can be applied to a broad range of platforms), and I was glad to find that [WayBack] Joe White made [WayBack] some great notes and posted them on his blog.

Edit 20100513T0830: (thanks Mario!) Don’t you love 404 :-)
The blog from Joe White seem to be down, and the web archive of his blog didn’t have that particular page, but the google cache has.


Danny is a great writer; I’m really glad he [WayBack] showed up at StackOverflow.
Here is another very [WayBack] nice answer from him on concurrency in software using read-write, locking, interlocked increment and more.

He found back his slides:

Consolidating a dusty box of ancient DVDRW archive disks this weekend (uploading them to multi-redundant NAS) and looky what I found! I’d given up all hope of ever finding this again. #digitalpackrat ftw!

Hope this brightens your day @jpluimers :)

    Yep. “Reading the tea leaves” was a great session. Got me starting using the CPU View more…

    It appears the link to Joe White post is broken.
