Debugging Teams
Better Productivity through Collaboration
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: October 2015
Pages: 190

In the course of their 20+-year engineering careers, authors Brian Fitzpatrick and Ben Collins-Sussman have picked up a treasure trove of wisdom and anecdotes about how successful teams work together. Their conclusion? Even among people who have spent decades learning the technical side of their jobs, most haven’t really focused on the human component. Learning to collaborate is just as important to success. If you invest in the "soft skills" of your job, you can have a much greater impact for the same amount of effort.

The authors share their insights on how to lead a team effectively, navigate an organization, and build a healthy relationship with the users of your software. This is valuable information from two respected software engineers whose popular series of talks—including "Working with Poisonous People"—has attracted hundreds of thousands of followers.

    Comments about oreilly Debugging Teams:

    I read the previous edition of this book last year, and gave a copy to my manager. I bought and read this edition a couple weeks ago; I thought it was good enough that I bought five more copies to give to some other colleagues at work.

      This book will help you understand frustration coming from staying in a goruop that works bad, and, hopefully, will suggest you paths to solve conflicts. I really appreciated this reading.

        The debugger (tool) can be used to debug a program.
        This book can be used to learn interesting and important things about teams, people and yourself.

          Comments about oreilly Debugging Teams:

          As a software engineer, I was looking for a book which is able to cover team performance keys which are related to work environment and not only based on skills.

          We can feel the authors experience through this book and why some techniques failed and some not.

          I definitevely recommend this book for any programmer/developer/engineer who needs to work in a team.
