Tales From The Crash Mines

06 Feb 2014, 07:26 PST

Over at Mike Ash's blog, he's posted my first issue of "Tales From The Crash Mines". I'll be writing this as an intermittent series on the interesting bugs we've tracked down on iOS and Mac OS X, interpreting crash reports, and software failure analysis and crash reporting in general.

The first issue explores a pretty interesting and educational bug, with a focus on the methodologies we use to derive more data from a fairly tricky crash report, and in the process, reconstruct exactly how an application failed.

Check it out! If you prefer PDFs (or dead tree reading), I've also posted a nicely formatted PDF generated from the original LaTeX sources.
