leaving breadcrumbs

I’ve talked in the past about lighthouses embedded in solutions to help prepare people for issues or problems. Another tool for developers is leaving bread crumbs in your comments that will help another developer walk through issues and bug fix your code.

Yeah I know – all code shipped it 100% bug free. But there are always bugs in the hardware or hardware/software combination that we couldn’t prepare for.

In reality it seems a simple concept (leaving bread crumbs) but we often forget the little things. In the IP/IC world having the ability to add specific break crumbs may improve the overall usability of the information.

But we forget things like that often. Except you can’t forget the bread crumbs when making good stuffing – it kind of changes everything.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers!
