Well, I gave my first team presentation today as part of my "Being a Better Developer" goals. Today's topic was "A Refresher Course on Debugging" and you can read the article I wrote for the topic if you follow that link.

The article was based on (i.e. copied from) one of the best debugging articles I have ever read. You can read the original and much more in depth article on debugging here (warning, it has a game development focus, but is still applicable to most developers).

The presentation itself went fairly well. Nothing flashy. I just quickly went over all the built in debugging options that exist in Visual Studio and showed how to access them. There were quite a few that I wasn't aware of before I started working on this presentation and I even picked up a nice couple of Visual Studio tricks from some other members of the team during the presentation ("Find All References" is a pretty slick and useful Visual Studio tool).


I think one of the most important things to get out of the article is that it's always good to review the basics. There's always a lot of new technologies and new development fads coming at you in this industry but often, improving yourself can just be reviewing some of the features you didn't know about in an application you use every day.
