It is not enough to succeed. Others must fail.

Have you ever had a bug nagging you for half a year? Have you ever been relieved after half a year of on and off debugging when you finally solved a bug? Did you ever reflect on why it took you so long to solve a bug?

In this presentation speakers will reveal how they solved their worst bug. You will experience old and new technical details that you've never heard about. You will get inspired to learn more.

Biography: Trisha Gee

Trisha is a developer at LMAX, the London Multi Asset eXchange.
