I’m Pascal, I’m a bug writer

I started writing bugs when I was 15-16 years old.

It all started innocently with some small BASIC programs on a home computer. But I soon moved on to the hard stuff: Assembler, Forth, C, LISP, Smalltalk, C++. Before I knew it I was working on products with several millions of lines of code and tens of thousands of recorded bugs.

After discovering Extreme Programming I decided to kick the habit.

I want to share with you the eleven step algorithm I used to get better.
