Jani Hartikainen's Blog:
Common programming errors and how to avoid them
October 08, 2009 @ 14:42:01

In a new post today Jani Hartikainen has pointed out a few errors that developers commonly make when writing and debugging their code.

Back in august, I introduced the error tracking challenge. While it didn't get as much participation as I had hoped for, I did manage to collect some results. In this post, I'll go through the most common ones, and suggest some approaches to avoiding them. Suggest your own errors and tips in the comments!

He's included issues in three major categories - boolean logic errors, typos/omissions and some common debugging mistakes. Inside each are some suggestions to help them make a less frequent appearance in your code: things like splitting up conditionals for readbility/ease of maintenance and being generally more careful in your development to reduce logic and small errors that could be picked up by the simplest syntax check.
